The English Department’s Creative Writing Program invites several writers to campus each year to give readings and meet informally with writing and literature students. This is made possible in part by the Elizabeth Boatwright Coker Visiting Writers Endowment.

The readings will be followed by a book signing. Events are free and open to the public.
