The Alabama Writers Hall of Fame was founded in 2014 through a partnership between the Alabama Center for the Book, housed in the University Libraries at The University of Alabama, and the Alabama Writers’ Forum, a statewide literary service nonprofit.  The  hall of fame honors the rich legacy of native Alabamians who earned their reputations in the literary arts.
