International Visiting Writers @ Queens College

On our own initiative, and in collaboration with other departments and student organizations, we have sponsored visits by international writers, journalists and prominent cultural figures. We plan on making this an integral part of college life to include more extended visits in which writers and journalists participate in writing and translation workshops, as well as public events for the campus community and the community at large.
