Events

The Department of English presents events throughout the year that are free and open to the public. We bring a mix of emerging and nationally acclaimed writers, artists and scholars to share their love of language and unique insights into contemporary culture.

Our premier event series is the Marylhurst Reading Series, which brings prominent writers to campus throughout the year to share their work and engage with our community.

One of our more recent, notable guests was author David Shields. You can watch a digital recording of the event on our YouTube channel.

We also welcome young writers and artists to campus each summer through show:tell, the Workshop for Teen Writers and Artists.

We also offer a study abroad opportunity. A two-week study trip that will take place in September 2015. For more information, contact Meg Roland at mroland@marylhurst.edu.
