Student/Faculty Readings

Almost every month of the academic year, MPW presents a Student/Faculty Reading at an off-campus venue, giving students in all genres an opportunity to share their work in front of a supportive audience—along with a featured faculty reader. Venues have included Barnes & Noble at The Grove, The Last Bookstore, and Skylight Books.

At the end of each academic year, MPW hosts a Graduating Student Reading, a celebratory marathon of presentations by new MPW graduates.

The MPW YouTube channel hosts videos of past Student/Faculty Readings and other MPW guest author readings, conversations, and panel discussions.
