Every year, KPU’s Creative Writing Department bring in new and established writers from across Canada to read / perform for our students. The visiting writers are paired with a KPU Creative Writing Student to read together. Afterwards the writer and student answer your questions about their work, the writing life, or whatever it is their reading made you want to know. Books are sold after the reading so if you like what you’ve heard, you can buy a copy and have it signed. KPU Creative Writing also works to have an annual Writer in Residence. This writers sticks around for a few days, reviews student work, meets with students and presents readings and talks in classrooms and for the university at large. For the last two years the KPU Creative Writing Writer in Residence was Kwantlen First Nation poet and playwright, Joseph Dandurand. Readings usually take place in Fir 3414 and everyone is welcome to attend.
