Campus Learning Outside the Classroom

English majors and minors have numerous opportunities on campus to enhance their education and gain additional professional knowledge. The English Department sponsors a number of workshops and lectures every semester. Many of these are career oriented and feature themes such as how to get published and how to write a first novel. Speakers have included authors, literary agents, and members of Hofstra's faculty sharing their professional insights.

The Great Writers, Great Readings series has been sponsored by Hofstra University and the English Department since 2004. This program features renowned novelists, poets, screenwriters, essayists, and playwrights who read from and discuss their work, and meet with Hofstra students in a question and answer session. Great Writers, Great Readings participants have included the very best contemporary writers.

English majors may also be interested in joining the Hofstra English Society, a student organization that celebrates literature, writing, and publishing. This is the home of our literary magazine, Font, which features the creative work of the Hofstra student body.
