Visiting Writers

Our major offers the study of the literary arts within a campus community that treasures the written word and therefore offers students countless in-roads to and perspectives on the value and the scope of writing. 

Every year, our campuses bring writers from around the world to meet our students.  As a part of our Creative Writing major, students work directly with these writers through classes, readings, interviews, and small gatherings.   We work closely with our Literary Arts Institute to design new events and activities each academic year.

Our latest development is the Writers-at-Home Program, where students on Study Abroad meet and discuss literature and writing with a local writer.

Additional writers visit our campuses each year through a variety of sources:
