One Wednesday a month, Writers in Camden, the Rutgers-Camden MFA’s visitors’ series, invites novelists, poets, and essayists to campus for a reading and discussion.  In recent years, we’ve welcomed Gary Shteyngart, Jennifer Egan, Tracy K. Smith, Tom Perrotta, Brenda Shaugnessy, Justin Torres, and dozens of other nationally renowned artists.  


Writers in Camden also offers afternoon writing workshops with our visitors, alongside publishing panels featuring editors, agents, publishers, and publicists.


All Writers in Camden events, including workshops, are free and open to the public. Readings are followed by a Q&A session and reception with the authors.


We hope to see you at a Writers in Camden event soon!
