Great Writers, Great Readings Series

Spring 2020

16th Annual Great Writers, Great Readings Series

Past Guest Authors

Great Writers, Great Readings was launched by Hofstra University in recognition of the importance of writing and literature in a liberal arts education. In addition to a baccalaureate degree in English and American Literature, creative writing, and publishing, Hofstra currently offers an MFA in Creative Writing. The MFA faculty currently includes director Miguel-Angel Zapata, authors Julia Markus, Kelly McMasters, and two Guggenheim Fellows: novelist Martha McPhee and poet Phillis Levin. Serving on the faculty of the new MFA in Creative Writing for Writers of Spanish are Professor Zapata and author Álvaro Enrigue.

Each Great Writers, Great Readings event brings a notable author to campus to meet with creative writing students for a short workshop and question/answer session. The author also conducts a reading and book signing that is open to the public. Sometimes the authors use this forum as an opportunity to introduce new, unpublished works.
