The Writing Center- CE
Explore the Literary Culture
Have you ever wanted to meet your favorite authors? Are you looking to improve your knowledge of their work?
The Writing Center hosts a cultural showcase of free literary events during the fall and spring and an annual Writers’ Conference to launch every summer that allow you to get up-close and personal with your literary heroes. Past special event lecturers include Lewis Lapham, Randolph Churchill, Joyce Carol Oates, Barbara Goldsmith and Lee Child. Our fall events include Jack Burstyn Memorial and Elizabeth Strong-Cuevas lecturers and Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney Conner Writers-in-Residence. During the spring, The Writing Center hosts the Best Selling Author series and the Great Thinkers of Our Time series. The annual summer Hunter College Writers’ Conference is widely considered one of the finest fiction and non-fiction conferences and features distinguished keynote speakers, writers, editors, publishers and literary agents on exciting panels. Intensive writing workshops in special topics such as Memoir and Fiction precede the conference.
