2011-2012 Writers at Newark Reading Series

The Rutgers-Newark MFA Program is interested in the real world experience our students bring to the classroom, as well as to creative exchange beyond the university campus. Our most visible bridge to the University and to Newark is The Writers at Newark Reading Series, which brings nationally prominent writers of fiction, poetry, and nonfiction to campus. The Reading Series provides the opportunity for a diverse audience of students, faculty, staff and the public to hear and interact with these writers in an intimate and dynamic setting. It is also the centerpiece for our community outreach programs, such as our Writers at Newark Reading Group at the Newark Public Library and programs with local Newark high schools. For more information on our community outreach, please contact us at (973)353-1107 or at rnmfa@newark.rutgers.edu
