The Salt Lake City Arts Council co-sponsors the Guest Writers Series (GWS) with the University of Utah Department of English and Creative Writing Program. A monthly series, scheduled on Thursday evenings, brings in contemporary writers from across the county. The public readings in the Finch Lane Gallery are free and followed by a reception for meeting the writers. Occasionally on the Friday following each reading, the authors participate in a public, informal lunchtime conversation from noon to 1:00 pm.
For more information call (801 )596-5000 for details.
