About the Series

As participants in The MPC Guest Authors Series, accomplished writers of poetry and prose come to our main campus in Monterey for public readings and discussions of writing and literature with MPC students.

Supported by The MPC Creative Writing ProgramEnglish Department, and Humanities Division, as well as The MPC Foundation and The Arts Council for Monterey County, the Series typically presents two Guest Authors each academic year, one in the Fall and one in the Spring semester.

Further enhancing the vibrant and inspiring Creative Writing environment at MPC, the Series offers extraordinary opportunity for those who pursue their own writing interest by way of our multi-genre Creative Writing curriculum to meet with and learn from diverse literary artists of consummate skill.
