Visiting Writers Series

The University of the Arts' new Visiting Writers Series will feature six acclaimed contemporary writers who will visit campus each year. These distinguished poets, novelists and short story writers will give readings – all of which are free and open to the public – and meet with students in the Creative Writing major to discuss issues of craft and the writing life.

The Series launched on September 24, 2013, with a reading, Q&A session and book signing by National Book Award winner and bestselling author Joyce Carol Oates. Read more >>

Scott McCloud has been writing, drawing and examining comics since 1984. His first series, Zot!, garnered multiple nominations in the prestigious Harvey and Eisner awards. His book Understanding Comics was a New York Times Notable book for 1994 and has since been translated into over 16 languages. Frank Miller (Sin City, 300) has described McCloud as "just about the smartest guy in comics" and Locus magazine called him "arguably, the most important cartoonist alive."
