Western hopes to attract writers of all ages and stages, as well as those who simply enjoy the literary arts. The goal is to celebrate and enjoy the art of writing as well as open the eyes of would-be students to the Creative Writing programs and courses at Western.

“The Western English Department invites the community to celebrate the art and craft of writing at the first annual Literary Festival. Featuring student, faculty, and community writers reading their work, attendees will experience creativity of others and can participate in workshops to explore the craft of writing,” said Jessica Dean, English Instructor at Western.

This event is sponsored by the Western Wyoming Community College English Department as well as Cultural Affairs.

The Literary Festival is free and open to the public and the community is encouraged to attend. For more information regarding this event, please contact the English Department at or look on Western’s community app, Mustang Connections at
