Drop/add is over and it’s time to get down to the daily grind. Brighten things up by discussing your ideas with a professional writer and your peers. Bring all your plans (drafts, outlines, concepts, you name it!) for all things prose to workshop them with Amy Bloom and the Wesleyan writing community.
Free snacks, great people, and valuable critique! Don’t miss this chance to praise, pity, and parse your writing, or anyone else’s.
Come to chat, come to share, come to snack.
Date: Thursday, February 11th
Time: 5-6:30 PM
Place: Shapiro Center (167 High Street)

Like children’s books? Interested in learning how to make one? Well hot diggity are you in luck because Amy Bloom, Wesleyan’s author in residence, is teaching her amazing course on “Creating Children’s Books” in the spring. This is a really fun and challenging workshop class that allows students to develop their storytelling and illustration skills, culminating in the creation of their very own children’s book at the end of the semester.
Check the course description on wesmaps. We’re accepting (informal) applications for the class November 3rd—just send an email to amy(at)amybloom(dot)com and gdegroot(at)wesleyan(dot)edu to express your interest in the class and set up an interview. Interviews start November 10th!
I’ll be hosting an information session about the class at 5pm on November 4th in the Shapiro Creative Writing Center to answer any questions you guys might have about the class—come by!
Date: November 4
