typewriter and books


Writers@Grinnell, the English department’s reading series, brings to campus writers of all kinds: poets, novelists, memoirists, essayists, radio essayists, columnists, graphic memoirists, playwrights, and short story writers. Believing language to be a dynamic and communal medium, we give its crafted versions the attention they deserve, and we take seriously the importance of diverse perspectives. Recent visitors include African American and Latino writers, international writers, LGBT writers, blind and deaf writers, bipolar writers, and writers with mobility impairments. Through the generous support of an anonymous donor, every year we host a distinguished author reading and an interdisciplinary creative writing event.
