The McGee Professor is an outstanding writer of national stature, whether a poet, fiction writer, playwright, screenwriter, or essayist. Many McGee Professors are accomplished in several of these areas at once. While on campus, McGee Professors teach writing classes, help direct senior honor theses, and contribute to the life of the College through readings and other appearances. McGee Professors have included Dorothy Allison, Susan Allport, Pinckney Benedict, Jill Ciment, Henri Cole, Maria Irene Fornes, Douglas Glover, Diana Hume Georges, Josephine Humphreys, Maxine Kumin, Thomas Mallon, Robert Morgan, Rona Munro, D.A. Powell, Davidson alumna Sheri Reynolds, Stephen Sandy, Therese Svoboda and Al Young.
