Working Dog

About Working Dog - The Graduate Student Reading Series

Working Dog is our graduate student reading series that features the most engaging, bustling, and fresh poems and prose coming out of the Department of English and the Creative Writing Program. Graduate writers are encouraged to privilege new work and bold performance.  Readings are open to the public and held roughly once-a-month during the academic year. Refreshments are served.
