Biographical/Historical Note

Judith Ortiz Cofer (nee Morot Ortiz) was born February 24, 1952, in Hormigueros, Puerto Rico, to parents Fanny Morot and J.M. Ortiz. Judith's father worked for the United States Navy in in 1956 her family moved to Paterson, New Jersey, after her father was stationed at the Brooklyn Naval Yard. For the next decade, her family migrated back and forth between the family home in Paterson and her maternal grandmother’s house in Hormigueros, where they stayed while her father was away at sea. At the age of fifteen in 1967, Judith moved with her family to Augusta, Georgia, where she graduated from Butler High School and subsequently attended college.

In 1971, Judith Ortiz married John Cofer, whom she met while attending Augusta College. They both graduated in 1974, Judith obtaining her Bachelor’s degree in English. By 1977, Cofer had completed her Master’s degree in English at Florida Atlantic University and spent the summer studying at Oxford University with a scholarship from the English Speaking Union.

Between 1978 and 1980, Cofer worked as an adjunct instructor of English Literature and Spanish Language at both Broward County Community College and Palm Beach Community College. From 1980 to 1984, she was an English lecturer at the University of Miami, Coral Gables. Cofer then secured a position at the University of Georgia as an English instructor (1984-1987). At that time, she left UGA and began work at the Georgia Center for Continuing Education (1987-1989), Macon College as an English instructor (1989-1990), and then Mercer University as a special programs coordinator (1990-1992). In 1992, she returned to the University of Georgia as a tenure track associate professor of creative writing. Since then, she has been appointed a Regent’s Professor and a Franklin Professor of English and Creative Writing and, as of 2012, still holds this post.

Though Judith Ortiz Cofer has worked as a free-lance journalist and had many short stories and poems published in varies weekly and daily publications, her literary career can truly be said to have begun around the age of twenty-eight with the publication of her first book of poetry entitled Latin Women Pray. Since then, she has published a wide variety of works including short stories, novels for children and young adults, poetry collections, autobiographical reflections, and essays. Notably, The Line of the Sun (1989) and The Latin Deli (1993) both received nominations for the Pulitzer Prize.

In 2010, Judith Ortiz Cofer was inducted into the Georgia Writers Hall of Fame – an honor bestowed on only a handful of Georgia authors. Cofer taught at the University of Georgia, until her retirement in 2013. She then moved to her family farm in Louisville, Georgia. Judith Ortiz Cofer passed away on December 30, 2016.


Scope and Content Note

The collection consists of a variety of materials donated by the author after her induction into the Georgia Writers Hall of Fame in 2010 It consists of manuscripts, correspondence, posters, and many other materials pertaining to her lengthy career.

The manuscript material covers Cofer's entire career from early writings from the 1980s through the 2010s. The bulk of the manuscript material document her fictional works in the children and young adult genres, while also highlighting some non-fiction works and poetry collections. In some cases correspondence regarding specific manuscript drafts is mixed in with said drafts, and this order was preserved to maintain context. Occasional book cover designs and poetry chapbook layouts are also included with the manuscripts. The manuscripts series is divided by genre into 15 subseries. Within these subseries, materials are organized alphabetically by title and then chronologically by date.

The non-manuscript items include materials related to Cofer’s professional career as a teacher and author. Of particular note are the correspondence, notebooks and journals, which provide insight into the early writing process, Cofer’s personal life, and the influence of editors and peers on Cofer’s published works. These subseries are divided into basic groupings but have not been organized in any particular order.

The posters include subject matter such as art, advertisements for readings, heritage, book art, etc.
