Professor Kevin Drzakowski, who is the event coordinator, said that prior to last year the readers were limited to faculty from the English and philosophy department.

“Last year was the first time we opened a reading to staff members across the university. It turned out to be a well-received, well-attended reading. For me, it was a joy to hear what my colleagues were working on,” he said. “Stout has a lot more people writing than you’d expect.”

The event is sponsored by the Literature Committee, the English and philosophy department and the College of Arts, Communication, Humanities and Social Sciences.

UW-Stout offers majors in professional communication and emerging media, a master’s in technical and professional communication and several writing-related minors.
