Every academic year the English Department at Ohio Northern University hosts visiting writers from around the country. Participants in our reading series publish in a wide range of genres and styles, including poetry, fiction, science fiction, and memoir. While on campus, visiting writers offer a public reading of their work (accompanied by select student readers) and conduct mentoring workshops with our students, offering real-world advice on the craft and business of writing.
You can see pictures from the events here.
