Drive Manny Drive Auditions (Senior Thesis Film)

drive-manny-drive-posterThe inimitable Ben Goldberg ’17 writes in for all u actors:

Come audition for Matt Shelley-Reade‘s senior thesis film DRIVE MANNY DRIVE

An uninspired voyeur stuck in suburbia. A driver’s test instructor out to get him. An overzealous father. And a sports car just waiting for him to pass his test. What would it look if you couldn’t pass your driver’s test to save the life of you and what if you had the same instructor every time? This short film tells a coming of age story of a young boy facing his own anxiety.

DATES & TIMES:
WEDNESDAY, 9/28: 5pm-7pm in Usdan 110
FRIDAY, 9/30: 3pm-4pm in Boger 112

The Writing Workshop is Officially Open for the Semester!

spongebob-essay-memeFrom Ford Fellow Gabe Borelli ’16:

Writing is hard. Sometimes we make mistakes. But whether you like it, love it, or hate it, writing is a part of life here at Wes. And sometimes it’s hard to get our ideas into just the shape we want them.

But fear not! Professor Meg Furniss Weisberg and I have just the solution! We’re excited to announce that the Writing Workshop has officially re-opened its doors as of Monday, September 12th.

At the Writing Workshop a staff of trained peer tutors is available to meet with you at every stage of the writing process. You can meet with a tutor to discuss ideas for an upcoming assignment, edit a rough draft of a paper, or review a professor’s comments on completed work. Everyone is welcome and all services are free. Make an appointment through your E-portfolio (click on “Writing Workshop”) or stop by during drop-in hours. One-on-one appointment slots last 45 minutes (though you do not have to use the whole time period), and all Workshop Tutors will be taking drop-in students in the event that there are un-booked appointments when you decide to drop in.

If you have any questions, please contact Ford Fellow Gabriel Borelli at (860) 685-2440 or writingworks(at)wesleyan(dot)edu.
