Visiting Writers Series: Liz Moore

Connelly Auditorium

The University of the Arts' Visiting Writers Series is sponsored by the Creative Writing program and features acclaimed contemporary writers who will visit campus each year. These distinguished poets, novelists, short story writers and screenwriters will give readings – all of which are free and open to the public – and meet with students in the Creative Writing major to discuss issues of craft and the writing life.

This reading features writer and musician Liz Moore, who wrote most of her debut novel – The Words of Every Song, about a fictional record company – while in college, then released her album Backyards. Her widely acclaimed second novel, Heft, was published in five countries and long-listed for the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award. Moore is the recipient of the 2014 Rome Prize in Literature; her third novel will be published by W.W. Norton in 2016.
