Aditi Kini ’13 sends word of a new student forum she is teaching with Cameron Couch ’13 this semester. Apparently Joss Whedon ’87 “would have been into this class, totally”:
Warning: Not part of the syllabus. (Though Joss Whedon would have been into this class, totally).
Do you like writing? Do you like the sciences? If you answered yes to these questions, you should seriously consider “From Fact to Fiction to Fantasy,” a student forum being offered this semester. Cameron Couch ’13 and Aditi Kini ’13 are co-leaders. This student forum follows a workshop format and has an emphasis on writing. People from any background are most welcome. For more information, here’s the course description:
“Although there are a multitude of creative writing courses at Wesleyan, the majority deal with broad topics like “Fiction” and “Non-fiction.” The few courses that do offer some specificity of study historically have failed to attend to one branch of writing: writing creatively about the sciences. This student forum seeks to fill this niche with a low-pressure, high-creativity environment in which class members will explore scientific topics and writing techniques simultaneously. Throughout the semester, participants will work both individually and in groups on fiction and creative nonfiction pieces that explore, discuss and question scientific knowledge, science fiction and established science and creative writing forms.”
For even more information, please contact Cameron at ccouch(at)wesleyan(dot)edu or Aditi at akini(at)wesleyan(dot)edu.

Date: Every Thursday
Time: 4:30 pm – 7 pm (yes, you can still catch the Film Series on Thursdays)
