Need something to read? (I’m always asking this question!) Look no further than your own back yard. Johns Hopkins is home to one of the premier writing programs in the country, and it has produced some major writers, such as John Barth. And the faculty of the Writing Seminars are no slackers either! Check out some of their published works from the library.

Poetry, fiction, nonfiction, plays – all writing starts out “small.” So make it a habit to look at the recent issues of literary reviews. The Eisenhower Library subscribes to many, many reviews; from the big names like The Paris Review to local publications like Poetry Northwest; British big names like Granta to Baltimore’s (and JHU’s) own Hopkins Review.  Browse the AP call number range in Current Periodicals, as well as the PN range. Lots of space to sit and read on M Level, in air-conditioned comfort.
