Reading Series

Every year, we bring six writers to campus for readings, talks, and the occasional workshop, all offered with no admission charge to both the MSU community and the public. 

Our Fall Writing Series features three writers of any genre, and takes place over three Wednesdays in October and November.

Our Spring Poetry Festival is our signature series, featuring three internationally renowned poets, and takes place over the first three Wednesdays in April.
