Visiting authors

Published authors visit Northwestern regularly to share their work and encourage students by reading and responding to their writing in classes and individual workshops.


When authors visit, we host Deepsong, a public reading of the writer’s work. Northwestern professors and students also share their creative writing at Deepsong. 

In addition to our top-10 U.S. News & World Report ranking, we’ve received national recognition for excellent academics, student volunteerism, affordability, conservation and other achievements. Learn more
