Carson McCullers Center

Carson McCullers Center


The Carson McCullers Center for Writers and Musicians is dedicated to preserving the legacy of Carson McCullers; to nurturing American writers and musicians; to educating young people; and to fostering the literary and musical life of Columbus, the State of Georgia, and the American South.

To that end, the Center operates a museum in McCullers' childhood home in Columbus, Georgia, presents extensive educational and cultural programs for the community, maintains an ever-growing archive of materials related to the life and work of McCullers, and offers fellowships for writers and composers who live for periods of time in the Smith-McCullers home in Columbus.

The Center is very pleased to co-sponsor a spring film series about the American Civil Rights Movement as part of the CSU History and Geography Department's Created Equal Initiative.
