Stay Involved


Join us for Book Club, hosted by Department of English faculty, and enjoy conversation about some of the greatest novels of all time on the first Wednesday of the month throughout the summer. Featured books were the most popular titles selected by more than one hundred Department of English alumni in our “Top Ten Book List” survey. Titles are available from your local library digital books program or your local book stores. The event is free and open to the public, and all Ohio State alumni, students, faculty and friends are welcomed to join.

The MFA Program hosts visiting writers each year to engage with the creative writing community at Ohio State. Visiting writers conduct readings that are free and open to the public; books are also for sale. These readings are followed by a Q&A by audience members. Some visiting writers also conduct workshops with current MFA students, which gives our students the opportunity to work closely with poets and fiction and nonfiction authors.
