Now in its fourth year, Northeastern Illinois University's Visiting Writers Series has another roster of stellar authors. The VWS has very quickly become a must-attend event not only for Creative Writing students from NEIU's English Department, but for the campus and community at large. The Visiting Writers Series, like all great literature, is not just for a select group, but for anyone who revels in the opportunity to see him or herself reflected in another's eyes, or, simply, to step into someone else's shoes for a while.

Professor Alicia Erian curates the Visiting Writers Series.
