We will also host a lantern walk and a talk by Professor Xiaomiao Zhu of the Asian Languages and Literatures Department – all for free!

So you wanna be a writer, huh? Well, listen up: times are hard. The publishing industry ain’t what it used to be. Back in the good ol’ days, they be accepting all kinds of strange stuff – Scandinavian love poems done in the prose of R. Kelly, novels with no words – you name it, they probably did that already. In hard cover.
These days, not so much. That novel about blind star-crossed lovers living in a Delaware trailer park you’ve been working on since high school? Dream on. That stack of poems you’ve got there about your dyslexic cats? Move along.
But hey, listen: we can help you. We know a place that’s publishing. Check it out:
The cohabitant Full and Writing Houses of 202 Washington St. are calling for your recipes!
THE GOAL: TO COMPILE 26 OF THE MOST DELICIOUS RECIPES-ONE FOR EVERY LETTER OF THE ALPHABET-INTO A LOVELY COOKBOOK (or, uh, cookbooklet).
Send your submissions to lbecker(at)wesleyan(d0t)edu with the name of the dish as the subject line (i.e. APPLE PIE, BANANA CREAM PIE, CHERRY PIE… though obviously not necessarily pie). Rolling submissions until Spring Break. The chosen recipes will be featured in said cookbook(let), which will be available to students upon completion. WE LOOK FORWARD TO YOUR NOMS.
No need to thank me.

Lila Becker ’12 (director extraordinaire) wants YOU to be her potential new housemate:

It’s not too late to apply to live in Full House! Two doubles and one single are available. Email LBecker@wesleyan.edu for an application. Applications are due by Friday, 11/19 (THIS FRIDAY!)
Looks like an offer you can’t refuse… take it while it’s hot!
This message brought to you by Lila Becker ’12:
Don’t you wish that you could snack on some delicious cookies and at the same time, help the Pakistani Flood Relief Initiative? Well, this Wednesday, you can!
Wednesday from 7-8:30pm on the first floor of Usdan, program houses and halls of Wesleyan will compete for cookie glory. Here’s how it works: you pay $2 for a ballot, sample the cookies, and vote on your favorites. The money goes to the Pakistani Flood Relief Initiative, the eternal fame and glory to the winners of the contest. And the cookies (and enfranchisement) go to you!
Don’t miss your chance to help out the Pakistani Flood Relief Initiative, and settle one of the most important issues of our day. (No, really. Full House and Science Hall have a serious cookie rivalry going.)
Date: Wednesday, October 27
Time: 7 – 8:30 PM
Place: First floor of Usdan
Happy midnight, Wesleyan. 48 hours from now, you could be enjoying some scrumptious pizza at Full House. Take it away, Lila Becker ’12:
Has Mamoun’s ceased to satisfy your late night cravings? Do you yearn for pizza in the middle of the night? Is the thought of Full House’s award-winning* Tomato and Lemon Zest pizza with feta and mozzarella cheese and homemade crust making your mouth water right now?
Then come on over to Full House between 10:30pm and 1am this Friday for some delicious homemade pizza fresh out of the oven. Rumor has it there may also be lemonade and cookies. Make sure you bring your WesID to get in and some cash–unfortunately we cannot take points.
