Live Literature

Montclair State University is fortunate to claim outstanding faculty-writers as our own. Our poets, dramatists, novelists, memoirists, and writers of other genres are published locally, nationally, and even internationally, and because of the multitude of writers we're privileged to offer "Live Lit!" events throughout the year. At “Live Lit!” events, typically two or three writers share a stage, first reading their work, and then responding to questions from the audience. Attending a “Live Lit!” event is a wonderful way for students to gain perspective on the writing process.

Stay tuned for the Spring 2015 schedule of Live Lit! events...
