Please join us for a reading of creative nonfiction and poetry by students in Teagle Fellow Kate Thorpe’s course, Creative Criticism and Inquiry: Writing Documentary Nonfiction and Poetry.  Each student in the class chose an archival collection from the holdings of Special Collections & Archives and wrote a creative piece inspired by the collection.  The results are wonderful examples of thinking outside the box of traditional archival research.  The collections chosen range from Civil War letters to the Hewlett Diversity Archive.  A selection of the archival materials will be on display at the reading.

For more information about the program, contact Kate at kthorpe(at)wesleyan(dot)edu.

Date: Monday, May 13
