Visiting Writers Series

The Visiting Writers Series is the heart of the Writers Institute's programming. Each year the Institute brings 40 to 50 writers to Albany to conduct informal seminars, writing workshops, and readings for UAlbany students and the general public. The list of writers includes winners and nominees of every major literary, film, and stage award as well as emerging and unheralded writers. The works of our visitors represent a diversity of literary genres, subjects, and artistic and public concerns.
