The Villanova Literary Festival

Each spring the Villanova Literary Festival brings a number of exciting writers to campus to give public readings and to meet with students who are taking our special Literary Festival course.


Each year the English department presents a number of awards, including recognizing seniors' work in both poetry and fiction, and presenting several prizes for the most distinguished undergraduate and graduate essays written in Villanova English courses, as well as for the best essays written in the Core Literature and Writing Seminars and the Literary Experience.
