2023 Wilma Dykeman Writer-in-Residence Program

The Wilma Dykeman Writer-in-Residence program provides the recipient time to write in the quiet comfort of author and activist Wilma Dykeman’s Asheville, North Carolina home. A collaboration between the University of North Carolina Asheville and the Wilma Dykeman Legacy, the residency honors the legacy of Wilma Dykeman, a groundbreaking environmentalist, pioneering civil rights reporter, best-selling author, founder of Appalachian Studies, and a beloved daughter, wife, and mother.
