About This Web Site
The Mississippi Writers Page is a multi-faceted Internet Resource about writers in, from, or otherwise associated with the state of Mississippi. Presented by the Department of English at the University of Mississippi, it is designed both as an introduction to the diversity of literary talent in Mississippi and (we hope) as a source of accurate and timely information for the serious literary scholar. Parts of this web site are still under construction, but information continues to be added to the database.
The heart of this web site are the Writer Listings, a collection of articles on each author detailing biographical information, a comprehensive list of published titles, various awards and honors, and a selected bibliography of additional resources. Also included are relevant World Wide Web links to other information sources on the Internet. Visitors to this site may browse the listings in a number of ways; you may access indexes to the individual articles sorted by authors' last names, by titles of published works, by year, by Mississippi places associated with those authors, and by genre. In the coming months, we also hope to implement a keyword search capability for this web site.
The Writer Listings, however, are only part of the features available here. Other features include lists of recently published books by Mississippi writers, news and events, information about literary landmarks in Mississippi, a chronology of literary events in the state, magazines and journals published in Mississippi, and information about publishing companies in the state. Other features may be added as well.
If you have information updates, suggestions, or corrections to report to us (broken hyperlinks, factual inaccuracies, omissions, etc.), please use this form to write us. Wed love to hear from you.
