The Department of English at Ohio Wesleyan University has a longstanding tradition of inviting nationally and internationally recognized writers to campus for the purpose of engaging, inspiring, and stimulating thoughtful discussion. These writers have included Seamus Heaney, Kurt Vonnegut, and Natasha Trethewey.

In addition to reading from new and oftentimes unpublished work, writers make classroom visits and sign books for students. All readings are proceeded by a Q&A and are free and open to the public.
