The Midnight Sun Visiting Writers Series is part of the English Department's MFA program. Writers are invited to UAF to present craft talks, meet individually with students, and present public readings to the community. The long-running series has included writers such as Pulitzer Prize-finalists Kim Barnes and Luis Alberto Urrea, and award-winning poets Camille Dungy, Robert Wrigley and Mark Doty.
