UCR's Writers Week is the longest-running free literary event in California and features the most renowned authors of our day alongside those at the start of promising careers. The full week of events is open to the public and includes readings, conversations, panels, and social activities all focused on the widely varied and exciting work of our participants, many of them among UCR’s powerhouse Creative Writing faculty. 

You'll be able to view our exhibit celebrating this year's Writers Week until Friday, February 16. 

This year's Writers Week events take place February 10 and 12-16, 2024. Events are hybrid, virtual and in-person, and are captioned and ASL translated.
