The Center for the Advancement of the Humanities is pleased to present LitMarquette, organized by Dr. Angela Sorby. LitMarquette sponsors readings that allow Marquette's many faculty and staff creative writers to build community with one another and with student writers.

After a brief pandemic-related diversion, LitMarquette is now ReLitMarquette! This modified series of readings will take place online. Creative writers and appreciative listeners (faculty, students, and staff) are invited to join.  A featured reader will present for the first 15 minutes, with an open mic to follow.
