Visiting speakers

A page within English


UWL's English Department sponsors a variety of visiting speakers--professional writers, poets, scholars, and activists. These events help students connect to larger communities in writing and publishing, and allow students and faculty alike to share the values of inquiry, creativity, and advocacy within and beyond the department's academic curricula. 

What can you do with an English major, minor, or certificate? Join us to learn more! Each semester, professional and technical writers and UWL alumni with different backgrounds and experiences are invited to campus to speak with our students about their work.
Visiting Writers Paula Cisewski and William Waltz
Recent University of Wisconsin-La Crosse alumni will be talking about their current careers, their experiences transitioning from school to a career, and will reflect on how their UWL experiences prepared them for exciting careers. All UWL students are welcome!
