The Visiting Writers Series presents four to five events each semester featuring authors who have distinguished themselves in poetry, fiction, nonfiction or drama. These writers not only give public readings of their work; they also conduct writing workshops, participate in classes and discussions and often hold individual conferences with interested student writers. The Visiting Writers Series is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
