As a Wesleyan student, you are joining a vibrant community of writers.  Students' engagement with writing extends far beyond the classroom.  Poets, essayists, journalists, and fiction writers visit the campus throughout the year, offering readings, workshops, colloquia, and informal discussions about writing.  Writing prizes recognize exceptional student work and support independent summer writing projects while students publish creative writing, journalism, and academic essays in more than a dozen student publications.  The Shapiro Creative Writing Center offers a new home for these many activities.


Congratulations to Alex Gilvarry, Visiting Writer in English, selected by the National Book Foundation as one of the year's distinguished  "5 Under 35."
