Writers' Ring

The Writers' Ring unites SUNY Fredonia students with the works of national and international writers. Students help decide on inviting visiting writers to campus readings that routinely draw over 100 audience members. Students also have the opportunity to edit the campus literary magazine, The Trident. Its mission is to encourage literary exchanges among students at Fredonia and to promote creative writing outside of the classroom and into the community by providing a forum for readings and lively discussions of fiction, poetry, and mixed genre literary work. Nationally and internationally renowned writers who have given readings recently include Naomi Shihab Nye, Steve Almond, Oliver de la Paz, Allison Joseph, Lisa Jarnot, Patrick Rosal, Ilya Kaminsky and Eric Gansworth.
