Cornell Writers

For more than a century, some of the most distinguished writers in American letters have studied or taught at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York. This site lists more than two hundred Cornell novelists, short-story writers, poets, memoirists, and other creative writers (including current M.F.A. program faculty members) along with other information and links of interest to readers and scholars.


This website is an archive and is no longer updated. The university may be building a new site that will honor the rich history of writing at Cornell. If that happens, a link will appear on this page.
