Vivian S. Delbrook Visiting Writers Series
In addition to workshops with our resident and rotating faculty,
students learn from the writers who visit campus each year as part
of the Vivian Delbrook Visiting
Writers Series. Since its founding in 1989, the Delbrook VWS
has brought a wide variety of internationally and nationally
recognized writers to Butler, from Nobel- and Pulitzer-prize
winning poets and novelists to important emerging literary
artists: Toni Morrison, Nadine Gordimer, Allen Ginsburg, E.L.
Doctorow, Dave Eggers, Art Spiegelman, Mary Karr, Seamus Heaney,
and hundreds more. Read more about this series.
For 2014-2015, the Visiting Writers Series is pleased to
host Tracy K. Smith, Carl Phillips, Jonathan Franze, Denis Johnson,
Louise Gluck, Zadie Smith, and Ellen Bryant Voight, among
more about the fall 2014 speakers.
