*About the Archive Literary Festival
Established in 1959 by Professor William Blackburn, the Archive Literary Festival began as a series of student-run literary gatherings aimed at making literature more accessible to Duke students. Every year, the Festival brings nationally acclaimed authors to Duke University and hosts local writers and faculty members for public readings. The Festival serves as a forum for discussion and appreciation of different modalities of literary expression amongst Duke students and faculty and the local community.
