Write into summer

May 22, 2017

On May 11, 2017, junior Creative Writing majors presented a reading of their own original works at the Writing House. Seven junior students participated in the reading, with selections including fiction, poetry, nonfiction and a new genre to The Writing House: Fan fiction. The students and their guests moved outside after the reading to roast marshmallows for s’mores over The Writing House’s outdoor fireplace.

The Creative Writing faculty hope to make the junior reading an annual event.

This Wednesday, May 24, from 6-7 p.m., the Performing Literature class invites you to join them in The Writing House for an evening of interactive performance and writing. The performance is inspired in part by Yoko Ono's famous book of instruction and drawings: "grapefruit."

The rooms of The Writing House will be remade as installations, performance venues, and private areas for the audience to reflect, write and participate.

Grapefruit-flavored refreshments will be served.

Finally, your last chance to catch a creative writing reading this year will be on Thursday, May 25 at 4 p.m. in the Dendrinos Chapel and Recital Hall.

Thank you to all of our students, seniors and post-grads for making the 2016-17 academic year one to remember.
