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 Heather Tone, winner of the 2016 APR/Honickman First Book Prize for her manuscript “Likenesses,” chosen by guest judge Nick Flynn. The book will be published in September 2016 and distributed by Copper Canyon Press through Consortium. Tone is also the author of a chapbook, Gestures (The Catenary Press). Her poetry has appeared in The Boston Review, The Colorado Review, Fence and other journals. A graduate of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, she currently lives in Florida.
