Student Reading Series

The Student Reading Series (SRS) is organized, planned, and publicized entirely by students and consists of monthly readings of student work throughout the year. Some of the readings are themed, and at the end of each semester, one reading is reserved for graduating seniors to read from their best fiction, poetry, non-fiction, and drama. Readings are not limited to Writing majors/minors; the SRS welcomes all writers as long as the pieces are literary in nature. The final SRS event of the Winter semester is the Senior Showcase, which is held each April.

Because we have themes for each of our readings, SRS offers prizes for the best reader of the night. Even if you choose not to read, come support your fellow writers and hear some student work!
