Write Better Together: A Talk by Molly Barton ’00

Write Better Together: an inside look at a new generation of social networks and websites that empower writers

A talk by Molly Barton ’00

Ms. Barton is teaching the senior seminar for Wesleyan’s Writing Certificate this spring.  Formerly the Global Digital Director at Penguin Random House, she founded a start-up inside Penguin called Book Country, “the most supportive writing and publishing community on the web” – where writers can get feedback on their manuscripts, and if they desire, publish them as e-books. Barton left Penguin in February to work more closely with the NYC tech and start-up community. She is working on a number of undisclosed digital initiatives with major media companies, and serving as strategic advisor to publishing related start-ups in New York City and Silicon Valley.

Contribute to Chana (Get a Free Ticket!)

1WyZ7tDFrom Wyatt Hodgson ’14:

The entire campus is invited to contribute to an art exhibition, which will also double as the atmospheric setup for Chana, a dance party themed on new urban Asia. The rave,which blends Asian culture, visual conception, dance music, and interactive art installations will be held at Eclectic on Saturday, April 19th. Tickets will cost $5. The student body is encouraged to come to 200 High Street anytime before Saturday to paint, draw, or sketch anything that they desire on space that has been provided by the organizers of the event. The artistic contributions of the wider Wesleyan community will collectively decorate the interior design of the event.

In addition, the Eclectic Society welcomes artists to submit artwork to be displayed. These pieces of art will contribute to the aesthetic of the space, and we welcome contributions in any form: photography, sculptures, drawings, paintings, performance art, etc. We do, however, strongly encourage the work to relate to Asian culture.

Five artists who submit 2 or more pieces will be chosen to receive a free ticket to the event!

SPRING FLING 2014: JUICE / JUICE/ JUICE

“Concerts on Foss: now more than ever!”

Word gets out pretty easily, so I’m basically just confirming what many of you already know. Here’s the Spring Fling 2014 Line-up, courtesy of Spring Fling Committee:

CHANCE THE RAPPER
TUNE-YARDS
S-TYPE

This year’s lineup still follows the loosely defined Spring Fling template of “rap act, indie-ish buzz band, raucous opening act” of the past few years, allowing us to reuse this sentence again and again. Some quick overviews and music from the artists are after the jump.
