Whether you’re interested in hearing a long-form “How I Spent My Summer Vacation” (now with pictures!), angling to keep up your Halloween sugar rush with an assortment of cookies and beverages, or simply hoping to delay the awkward conversation in which you try to explain your new piercing/fetish/drug of choice after not having seen your parents for two months (I know I certainly am), come out to Zelnick at 4:30pm this Friday for an artist talk and reception.

prelim3 flyer

Feeling spooky? Cool. Come to X House this Saturday, November 2nd, for WeSLAM’s Third Preliminary Slam! Get haunted by the words of some great poets facing off for a spot on the Wesleyan Slam Team. There will be blood. One poet will be sacrificed. Ten poets will slam. Three poets will survive.

Sean “Mega” DesVignes will be featuring! He’s a sick poet; check him out here.

Additionally, there’s a open mic before the slam. Totally non-judgmental environment. Show off your stuff. Get some feedback.

If you want to sign up for the slam, please send an email to weslam[dot]wesleyan[at]gmail[dot]com after 5PM. If you sign up between 5 and 6 but don’t make the first nine slots, you’ll be in the lottery for the tenth spot.

Date: Saturday, November 2
Time: 7:30 PM

Veritas Forum: Making Sense of Mental Health

Dr. Dan Blazer – Vice Chair of Faculty, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Duke University

Dr. Nii Addy – Assistant Professor Psychiatry, Yale University

Moderated by Dr. Jennifer D’Andrea – Director of Counseling and Psychological Services, Wesleyan University

The Writing Programs present: Another Publishing Workshop


Ford Fellow Piers Gelly ’13 sends us this, but I’m too tired to think of something witty to say in this line and am just going to end it with a colon after this word:

Bring a short piece of writing (you own or someone else’s) and learn
how to turn that text into a beautiful printed work. Halloween-related
texts are extremely welcome but not required.

Please email pgelly[at]wesleyan[dot]edu with any questions.

Date: TODAY, Thursday, October 31
Time: 4:15 PM – 5:15 PM
