Student Events

Boston University MFA candidates participate in readings all around Boston. These events are free and open to the public, and are a great way to meet writers from around the Boston community.

In collaboration with the MFA programs at Emerson College, Lesley University, and the University of MassachusettsBoston, the Breakwater Reading Series is designed to share the work of MFA Students in the Boston area. Click here for more information.

The Black Box Reading Series is coordinated by students in Boston University’s Program in Creative Writing. The series was created in 2011 to highlight the work of current students and alumni associated with the program.

All events will be promoted on our Facebook page in advance.
