The University of Cincinnati’s Creative Writing Program continues its Visiting Writers Series this week, bringing the public and the UC community together with several distinguished authors and poets.
This series takes place every semester at UC, sponsored by the Department of English in UC’s College of Arts and Sciences and the Elliston Poetry Room. The spring lineup includes notable authors Gwen E. Kirby, Brenda Peynado, Liv Stratman and Bess Winter.
This literary event includes both fiction and poetry readings as well as a lecture from Brian Teare, the 2023 Elliston Poet-In-Residence. All readings are free and open to the public and can be observed in-person or real-time via Zoom.
“The Visiting Writers Series offers the chance to hear from a diverse and exciting array of contemporary voices,” says Jennifer Habel, coordinator of creative writing.
“In addition to listening to these writers read from their work, students can meet them, ask questions and get their books signed. This semester the series also offers informative panels and lectures on topics such as publishing, literary agents, and ecopoetics,” she says.
