Internationally renowned artists, dazzling theater productions and concerts, and engaging speakers await you at Arcadia University. Each semester brings a fresh array of talent to campus: from emerging Arcadia talent to established global innovators.
The Writers Series brings poets, novelists, short-story writers, memoirists, and playwrights of distinction to campus. Past guests range from well-established to up-and-coming writers, including Seamus Heaney, Richard Wilbur, Marilynn Robinson, Tobias Wolff, Richard Russo, and Jean Valentine. Often, Arcadia alumni who have had notable literary success return to campus as part of this series.
Free and open to the public, our Writers Series events include a reading and question-and-answer session with the audience. Books or CDs by the writer will be available for purchase.
