Visiting Writer Series

Visiting Writers Series

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.

The Creative Writing Department presents its annual Senior Portfolio Reading and Redlands Review Launch

This virtual event will celebrate the capstone work of Seniors in the Creative Writing Department at the University of Redlands. Student writers will read excerpts from their Senior Portfolios, which they have developed over a two semester course; and which showcase their accomplishments in Poetry, Fiction, and Creative Nonfiction.

The Redlands Review, a student led magazine dedicated to highlighting both emerging and experienced writers on campus, will also celebrate the launch of their 2021 publication at this event.

This event is open to all.
