The Creative Writing Lecture Series

The Writing Program's 2014 - 15 Creative Writing Lecture Series welcomes writers Karen Russell, Yiyun Li, Tao Lin, Michael Cunningham, Jayne Anne Phillips and Chang-Rae Lee to Columbia University School of the Arts for talks on literary craft.

The Creative Writing Lecture Series, now in its eighth year, brings distinguished writers to Columbia for original talks on literary craft. The writers are diverse and brilliant, with a wide range of artistic strategies, and each talk turns into a short course on the challenges of making vital literary art. Among our past guests are Aimee Bender, Joyce Carol Oates, Mary Gaitskill, James Wood, Michael Chabon, Jennifer Egan, Nicholson Baker, and Lydia Millet (above).

All events are free and open to the public. They are held in Dodge Hall (2960 Broadway, Room 501) on the Morningside Heights campus of Columbia University, at 116th Street and Broadway, at 7 pm; any schedule or location changes will be posted. The series is sponsored by the Columbia University School of the Arts Writing Program
