Creative Writing

A Tribute to Phil Furia

On Monday November 4 at 2 p.m. in the Fisher University Union, Azalea Coast, A, B, UNCW’s Creative Writing Department held a tribute for Phil Furia, a beloved professor who passed away last spring. Episodes of his successful radio program “The Great American Songbook” were shared, as well as testaments to his wide-ranging, influential university and departmental service and teaching. We also announced the creation of the endowed Philip Furia Fellowship in Creative Writing. Phil was a true professional and his wisdom and collegiality, his warm and caring manner, are much missed. Thank you for joining us in remembering how fortunate we are to have known him.
