The Emerging Writers Series brings young poets and writers with at least one critically acclaimed book to the campuses of UNLV and UNR to work with creative writing students and give a public reading of their work. The series is made possible by a grant from Nevada Humanities.
The Emerging Writers Series (EWS) brings early career poets and fiction writers each year to the campuses of UNLV and UNR to present public readings and student-centered craft talks.
