Writer's Day & Weekend

Writer's Day

On the first Monday of every month, the English department hosts our Writers' Day series. In these events, a panel of professional writers, philosophers, historians, artists, poets, and psychologists talk about how they write about particular subjects. They read their work and interact with the students.

Writer's Weekend

Every year, on the third or fourth weekend of April, the English department hosts Writers' Weekend, a part of Mt. SAC's campus-wide Weekend of the Arts. This event is open to participants from our college, other California colleges, and the surrounding community. Fiction writers, poets, creative nonfiction writers, scriptwriters, actors, graphic artists, fine artists, and all creative minds: this is your chance to network, workshop, and create with others who share your passion.

You are invited to take part in workshops and one-on-one conversations with professional writers, poets, artists, publishers, editors, and agents.
