About the series
Temple University Poets & Writers Series
Public readings by Recognized and Emerging Authors
The Poets & Writers Series is sponsored by the Temple University Graduate Creative Writing Program, with the assistance of the Richard Moyer Fund. Each year a number of poets and fiction writers are invited to speak (usually on Thursdays) to members of both the Temple community and the local Philadelphia arts scene. Joining each invited writer is a writer from Temple’s graduate program in Creative Writing.
All events are free and open to the public. Readings are held either on the main Temple campus or the downtown Temple location in Center City. Directions to Temple University Center City, 1515 Market St., are below.
