Scott McWaters holds a BS in Secondary Education Language Arts from the University of Alabama and an MFA in Fiction from the University of Memphis. He has been an Instructor since 2002 and is a three-time finalist for the University's Last Lecture Award, as well as a recipient of the department's Outstanding Teaching Award by an Instructor. In order to support his children, McWaters also teaches a course in the Honors College every semester. In the fall he talks about Dante, and in the spring he talks about William Blake. Scott McWaters pecked The Bird Trilogy, which consists of Godliness & Other Unheard Stories, A Fundamentalist Bares All, and The Empty Nest. Pieces from these three books have appeared in various journals over the past decade. He is presently finishing a manuscript co-authored with fellow teacher Abraham Smith called Tuskaloosa Kills and he is working on the only novel he will ever write, a modern (loose) retelling of Homer's Iliad from the viewpoint of Jesus.
