44th UCR Writers Week: Craig Santos Perez & Brandy Nālani McDougall

Entering its 44th year, UC Riverside’s Writers Week is the longest-running free literary event in California and features the most renowned authors of our day alongside those at the start of promising careers. The full week of events is open to the public and includes readings, conversations, panels, and social activities all focused on the widely varied and exciting work of our participants, many of them among UCR’s powerhouse Creative Writing faculty. 

This year will be unique in that we are offering all readings for the full week virtually. This stands to expand our participation greatly beyond Southern California.
