The Porter Fleming Literary Competition honors the memory of Porter Fleming, one of Augusta, Georgia’s leading citizens and foremost philanthropists. The competition is administered, with the support of the Porter Fleming Foundation, by the Morris Museum of Art, the first museum in the country to focus on the art and artists of the American South.

The Porter Fleming Literary Competition consists of four categories—fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and one-act play—and awards $7,000 in cash awards.

Winners are invited to participate in a special literary program and awards ceremony on April 7, 2019 in the auditorium of the Morris Museum of Art. Awards will be mailed the following week to any winners not in attendance. RSVP to 706-828-3800.
