Writers Live @ UTB & TSC

In this endeavor we intend to bring literature to the UTB campus in an effort to encourage our students to read and potentially become creative writers.  With this series the writer interacts with the student body as much as possible, while also offering a public reading and book signing as a nightly event. Throughout the course of their visit, the writer makes a classroom visit to one of the literature or creative writing courses, the writer also hosts a workshop where anyone UTB student, staff, or faculty member is encouraged to partake in, and then on the last day of the writer’s visit a lunch is provided where anyone can come and speak with the author in a more relaxed setting.
