Jim Wilson

Faculty Profile
Department: English

Professor James Wilson is no stranger to the publication of his work. He has published fiction, poetry and nonfiction in national literary journals and magazines such as the Southwestern Review and Prairie Winds. 

This past spring saw the publication of “The Encyclopedia of Epic Films,” coauthored by Wilson, Flagler Professor Emeritus Constantine Santas, former Flagler professor Maria Colavito and University of Melbourne professor Djoymi Baker.

The Encyclopedia is a catalogue of 250 epic films such as “Gone With the Wind” and “Lawrence of Arabia” and provides cast and crew lists, awards and nominations, DVD and Blu-ray editions as well as notes and a bibliography.

When he isn’t writing and publishing his own work or teaching creative writing classes, Wilson is busy organizing the “Other Words” Conference sponsored by the Florida Literary Arts Coalition (FLAC), of which he is a member. The conference, held at Flagler College, brings together new and familiar voices in writing to speak and share their work while also promoting independent publishing.  

Currently, Wilson is working on his first novel, “Giving it Away.”

“The Encyclopedia of Epic Films” is available through the publisher, Rowman & Littlefield, as well as Barnes and Noble and
