Ripon College Visiting Writers Series was launched at Ripon College with assistance from the Schang Family Visiting Writer Fund.
The Visiting Writers Series regularly hosts public readings and Q&A sessions with some of the most influential people in contemporary literature. Award-winning authors like Arthur Stringer, Eric Nelson, Allison Joseph, Patricia Smith and Edward Falco have shared their work with the Ripon College community and interacted with students in the classroom.
The program is coordinated by English faculty and offers an average of four events per year, all of which are free and open to Ripon students as well as the broader Ripon community.
In the spring of 2015, we hosted two fiction writers for the Visiting Writers Series:
