Self-expression and communication through writing is an invaluable skill in today’s fast-paced, digitally interconnected world. This guest author series is comprised of visits from a wide range of published professionals. The forum will be a moderated, interview-style discussion of the authors’ publications, focusing on how writing was instrumental to advancing within their respective fields. These discussions will be followed by a Q&A with the student body and community.
