The One-on-One Reading series pairs a student from the Program for Writers with a writer of national repute. The student reads first, incorporating an overview of how his or her work has been influenced by the guest writer's work, as well as an introduction of the guest writer. The guest then reads from his or her work, followed by questions from the audience.
