Each year, the Writing Program hosts a variety of readings and discussions with faculty, students and guests. Every year students have the opportunity to hear their professors through Gallatin Teachers Readings, where faculty members who have recently published a book read from their work, and Writers in Progress, where Gallatin faculty and staff read from a current scholarly or creative project. Students present their own work at Students Reading Their Writing and learn about the varied paths and specialties of professionals at Careers in Writing and Publishing. The Writing Program’s newest series, Gallatin Global Writers, highlights contemporary international authors and explores the diverse literary traditions and cultures from which their writing arises.
The Writing Program also often organizes guest lectures, where well-known writers read from and discuss their writing. Past presenters have included Dorothy Allison, Chris Abani, Andre Aciman, Edwidge Danticat, and Maxine Hong Kingston.
Other events include the readings to celebrate the Writing Program's annual publications: The Gallatin Review Reading, where contributors and editors read and discuss the newest volume, and the Literacy Review Celebration, where some of the recently published writers read from their work.
