The event lasts three days and features writers, poets and musicians from all over the country, all showcasing their talents while helping others improve their creative writing skills.  

Staff said the festival is a great way to learn more while appreciating the work of others.  

“It’s important for our student body to be able to interact with writers that are local writer, regional writers, national writers and also for our campus community to be a part of the festival attending different things that go on,” said Dr. Nathaniel Hansen, Associate Professor of English and Director of the Windhover Writers Festival. 

The are several different presentations and workshops planned for the festival over the next few days and most of which are open to the public.
