In collaboration with a few MFA in Writing alumnx, we designed this series of readings based on the “Student Readings” many graduates of the low-residency writing program might remember from their time on campus. These brief and informal readings offer an excuse to dust off that old draft, share something new and, above all, connect with fellow writers.

In addition to reading slots open to alumnx sign-ups, each evening we’ll be featuring two recently published alumnx authors who are actively promoting new books this spring. All readings will take place on Thursdays at 8 pm ET/5 pm PT. If you are a Writing alumnx interested in reading during one one of our upcoming events, please sign up for a reading slot here!

Whether you’re interested in reading or just listening in, we hope you’ll join us over the coming weeks!
