Reading Series

The Juniper Reading Series is held during the week of the Juniper Summer Writing Institute and features our workshop faculty, guest writers, and alumni-in-residence. Institute participants attend for free. These readings are open to the public, though public seating is limited. We suggest a sliding-scale donation of $5 to $20 from members of the public attending the reading series. You can donate to our scholarship fund online through this secure link. The reading series schedule will be announced in late spring 2024.
