The Raymond Carver Reading Series features twelve to fourteen prominent writers yearly as part of a large undergraduate class taught by TAs from the Creative Writing Program. The readings have an extended Question and Answer session along with a reading. The public is welcome to attend. Recent authors include Gary Lutz, Sam Lipsyte, Brigit Pegeen Kelly, Terrance Hayes, C.K. Williams and Lydia Davis.

Leonard S. Elman ’52 endowed a visiting writer fund in The College of Arts and Sciences to honor the memory of his brother, Richard ‘55. He established the Richard Elman Fund, which is part of the Raymond Carver Reading Series. Every year, the fund enables a distinguished author to serve a two-day residency at SU.
