The Writers Series, initiated in the spring of 1984 with a minority writers conference, represents a long standing tradition at the Harvard Foundation. As part of this series, the Foundation honors writers from diverse backgrounds for their contributions to world literature. Students have the opportunity to discuss works both with the author and their peers. The series has featured world renowned authors, but also works to identify and champion young, upcoming writers of all backgrounds who demonstrate extraordinary talent.
Writers Series Honorees are depicted below, with the most recent honorees listed first.
