English, Writing, and Professional Communications


Writers@Work is our visiting writers series, and is a presentation of the Liberal Arts Department and the CCSJ Creative Writing Club. Unlike some series, which present literary writers only, ours presents authors and speakers who represent a very broad view of what writing does in the world. We've had community leaders, oral historians and lawyers, as well as poets, playwrights and novelists.

Recent Visiting Writers include:

  • National Poetry Slam Team Member Marty McConnell,
    ("wine for a shotgun"), October 22, 2012

  • Playwright and historian John Fraire,
    ("Who Will Dance With Pancho Villa?" and "Cesar Lives"), April 17, 2012

  • Indiana Poet Laureate Karen Kovacik,
    ("Metropolis Burning," "Nixon and I," and others), April 3, 2012

  • Def-Jam poet Kevin Coval,
    ("L-Vis Lives", "Everyday People"), April 21, 2011

  • Award winning novelist and fiction writer Bruce Machart,
