The Visiting Writers Series brings to campus acclaimed writers of diverse backgrounds and approaches to share their work and interact with students, faculty, and the larger university and Redlands communities.
At the regularly scheduled, public events, authors read from their work and then participate in open discussion with the audience. A reception and book signing typically follows. Earlier in the day, visiting writers often meet with seminar and workshop students to discuss their work and careers and to engage with faculty in conversations about creative writing.

This event is open to all.
