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
Place: CFA Lab

Film Series: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

1974. USA. Dir: Tobe Hooper. With Marilyn Burns. 83 min.

Five teens road-tripping through isolated backcountry pick up a creepy hitchhiker, run low on gas, wander into a creepy old farmhouse…needless to say it ends messily. Be thankful that this influential yet truly disturbing film (and its acolytes) taught you the warning signs so well.

Tonight. 8pm. Goldsmith Family Cinema. $5.
