Some of the biggest names in fiction, creative non-fiction and poetry will be in Anchorage in July to give a series of free public readings.

The 3rd Annual Northern Renaissance Arts and Science Series of public readings at UAA begins Sunday evening, July 11, with noted poet Kim Addonizio. Altogether, 18 writers from Alaska and Outside will read for nine evenings, through July 20.

The Northern Renaissance Arts and Science Series of public readings is part of the Master of Fine Arts graduate writing program of the UAA Department of Creative Writing and Literary Arts (CWLA). The three-year, low-residency MFA program includes a 12-day intensive summer residency at UAA, after which the student writers depart for their homes in Alaska and elsewhere to write and study under the guidance of individual writing mentors.

The public readings are scheduled for 8 to 9:30 p.m. each evening in Room 150 of the Fine Arts Building on the east side of the UAA campus. Doors will open at 7:30 p.m.

All readings are free and open to the public. UAA's Campus Bookstore will be on-hand each evening to showcase and sell books authored by MFA faculty and special guest writers. For more information, contact Kathleen Tarr, MFA Program Coordinator at (907) 786-4394, or at afkt1@uaa.alaska.edu. View the full schedule of readings and the writers who'll give them at this link.
