Upcoming Readings

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all program-sponsored creative writing events for the remainder of the spring 2020 semester have been cancelled. Please check back here for updates if and when these events are re-scheduled.

The Program in Creative Writing brings writers and writing professionals to Madison each semester to read from their work, discuss the writing life, or otherwise engage with our writing community. We encourage all Madison community members to sign up to receive e-mails about upcoming literary events.

Below you’ll find a more-or-less complete schedule of upcoming literary events in Madison, which will be updated as changes occur. All readings are free and open to the public, unless otherwise noted. You can also subscribe to our Google Calendar (excerpted at left) to see how these events fit into your schedule and to keep constant tabs on what’s happening around town on your phone or other device. If you have an event that you would like added to our calendar, please contact the Readings Coordinator, Sean Bishop.
