Literary House Events

Each year, The Rose O’Neill Literary House offers two themed semesters of programming. Recent themes include “Chicano & Latino Voices” and “Writing for (and about) Young Adults.” In 2015-2016, the Literary House will focus on the subjects of “The Verbal & the Visual” and “Queer Voices.”

The Literary House also partners with the English Department and the Sophie Kerr Committee to host the Sophie Kerr Lecture Series, which includes visits by poets, fiction and nonfiction writers, scholars, and imaginative thinkers from across disciplines.

    Every year, the Literary House Summer Interns are provided with training and a modest budget to organize and run a professional literary event at the Rose O’Neill Literary House. This event was organized entirely by 2015 interns Ryan Manning ’17 and Aliya Merhi ’16.
