The Write Thing Reading Series
Originally founded and run by Ted Pelton, The Write Thing Reading Series is devoted to bringing literary artists to Medaille College's campus for the purpose of enhancing the educational experience of students and contributing to the scope and richness of the larger Buffalo literary community.
For 20 years, Medaille College's Write Thing Reading Series has hosted talks, presentations, workshops, readings, and performances by both national and Buffalo-based fiction and non-fiction writers, poets, spoken word artists, playwrights, and other literary creatives. These presentations are open to students, faculty, and the public.
Last year, because large in-person events were not possible due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Write Thing became a virtual workshop series in which artists and writers shared their craft and process with students and faculty alike. This year, the Medaille community is excited to be back on campus, and eager to re-engage with an in-person reading series for those able to attend. For those unable to join in person, this year's series will also have streaming and/or recorded options.
Please check back soon for announcements regarding our 2021-2022 Write Thing Reading series guests!
