Sponsored by The Creative Writing Project, Nassau Community College’s Literature, Live! reading series brings to campus renowned writers from around the world. Among those who have read at NCC are Joyce Carol Oates, Charles Simic, Jamaica Kincaid, Yusef Komunyakaa, Tobias Wolff, Mark Doty, Marilyn Hacker, Nahid Rachlin, and Michael Thomas. These writers present their work in readings that are free and open to the public, conduct master classes and Q&A sessions for creative writing students, and meet with faculty groups.
Literature, Live! also sends writers from Nassau Community College out into the Long Island community to give lectures, readings and/or workshops at libraries, local public schools, art galleries, museums, or any other Long Island organization that would like to include literary activities in its offerings. The Faculty Profiles page contains biographies, samples of work, and contact information, or, if you would like more general information, contact Professor Christina M. Rau, Coordinator of the Creative Writing Project at firstname.lastname@example.org.
