Fredonia's Alumni Writers-in-Residence Series

Writers @ Work brings Fredonia alumni with a variety of educational backgrounds, careers, and accomplishments back to campus for a series of events. Over a two- or three-day period, writers-in-residence may give craft talks, speak on a panel, lead workshops, critique student writing, participate in Q&A forums, visit classes, or meet student groups. Students, faculty, and community members are provided with opportunities to interact with and learn from each writer’s unique skill set and experiences.

Mission Statement:

Writers @ Work is an alumni writers-in-residence series featuring both well-established and emerging writers, editors, and publishers in a range of professional and creative genres. The series seeks to connect Fredonia’s alumni, students, faculty, and community members with a focus on the diverse ways writing and the humanities make a difference in the world.


The Writers @ Work series serves the following goals:

  • to broaden students’ awareness of the value of writing to professional success;
  • to showcase the myriad of ways writing and the humanities make a difference in the world;
  • to help foster relationships between our alumni and students;
  • to tell Fredonia’s story in new ways; and
  • to celebrate our alumni’s achievements and learn from their experiences while engaging with community members.

Sponsors and Partners:

The Writers @ Work series wishes to thank its sponsors: Fredonia Alumni Association, Fredonia College Foundation, Fredonia College Foundation's Carnahan Jackson Humanities Fund, Department of History, the Mary Louise White Fund, and the Faculty Student Association.

This program is made possible by a partnership between the departments of Business, Communication, English, History, and Theatre Arts and the offices of Alumni Affairs and Career Development.
