Each year, the Creative Writing Program, in partnership with The Robert D. Clark Honors College, sponsors an annual reading series featuring writers from all over the country. Visitors often teach a workshop or conduct a colloquium in addition to giving a public reading.

Past guests of the program have included Richard Bausch, Charles Baxter, Samantha Chang, Michael Collier, Tess Gallagher, Patricia Hampl, Charles Johnson, Yusef Komunyakaa, Philip Levine, N. Scott Momaday, Antonya Nelson, Gary Snyder, Susan Straight, Brain Turner, Tobias Wolff, Randall Kenan, William Logan, Charles Wright, and Linda Gregerson.
