The literary colloquium features events by SLC faculty members, visiting writers, editors, publishers, and literary agents, and is designed to bring MFA students in contact with a wide array of ideas from the world of writing.

Examples of regular events in the colloquium are: a residency in each genre (which includes a reading and a craft talk by a visiting author); conversations with writing faculty members and visiting writers; panels and discussions focused on publishing, teaching, editing, or other career-related topics.

By participating in forums related to both craft and professional development, students benefit from exposure to many voices, genres and experiences.
