Creative Writing Reading Series: The Writers Harvest
CSU’s creative writing program welcomes two esteemed writers to read their work and answer questions as part of a nationwide series of events to fight hunger.
Across the country, writers and readers unite to support food banks, soup kitchens, and local nutrition programs. At this Nov. 7 event, we ask attendees to bring nonperishable food items, which will be given to the Larimer County Food Bank. In exchange for each item, guests will get a chance to win prizes offered by the Fort Collins community.
