Writers Series

Bringing Writers of Distinction to Campus

The Writers Series

The Writers Series brings to campus writers of distinction—poets, novelists, short-story writers, memoirists, playwrights—and ranges from the well-established to the up-and-coming. Past guests include writers Seamus Heaney, Richard Wilbur, Marilynn Robinson, Tobias Wolff and Richard Russo, as well as poet Jean Valentine. At each event, the writer gives a reading, followed by a question-and-answer session with the audience. Books or CDs by the writer will be available for purchase. The events are free and open to the public.

Writers Return to Campus Series

Part of the Writers program, this series brings back to campus Arcadia alumni writers who have recently had a notable literary success in their lives.
