Community Resources

The Kenyon Review invites readers and writers of all ages to join in our community programming:

  • Reading Series: Each year, the Kenyon Review brings dozens of talented writers to the Kenyon College campus for readings that are free and open to the public.
  • Youth Writing Workshops: Held at Paragraphs Bookstore and led by Kenyon Review Associates and Interns, these free creative writing workshops give local elementary and middle school students the opportunity to create poems, stories, plays, and more. For high school students, check out the Teen Writing Program at the Public Library of Mount Vernon and Knox County
  • Knox Reads: An annual community reading event celebrating the work of one chosen author each fall. Knox Reads programming includes book giveaways, discussions, and presentations throughout the community.
  • The Kenyon Review Literary Festival: A multi-day celebration of literature on the Kenyon College campus featuring readings, workshops, presentations and more. The Literary Festival culminates in the Denham Sutcliffe Memorial Lecture, delivered by the recipient of the Kenyon Review Award for Literary Achievement.

All community programming is free and open to the public.
