New Speak Your Piece Episode

Speak Your Piece main man Dan Levine ’11 writes in with this week’s episode—tune in here:

We’re back from fall break with a great episode featuring three Wesleyan student writers. Zach Schonfeld ’13 takes a biographical tour through his father’s record collection, Natalie Fine ’13 tells about what may be the worst restaurant in America, and Mike Rosen ’11 shares a story of Fire Island.

Listen up.

And remember: Speak Your Piece is a show for you to share your writing. If you have any short fiction, poetry, essay, or any other creative writing that you’d like to share on the air, send it in to speakyourpiece(at)wesufm(dot)org.


Slam Poetry Team General Interest Meeting

Mike Rosen ’11 writes in:

Good People of All Shapes and Sizes,

I’m writing to let you know that you no longer have to close your blinds and hide under the covers every time you blow the dust off that old Whitman book you keep disguised behind your “Almanac of Socially Acceptable Hobbies.” That’s right. No longer will you cower in shame in Olin every time you cry a little too obviously watching Ken Arkind or get a little too inspired while watching Saul Williams. Poets, the time has come to step out of the shadows and into . . . Usdan!

This Sunday we’ll be holding a general meeting for anyone interested in being part of the inaugural Wesleyan University Slam Poetry Team, whether they’ve never written a poem in their life or are international slam champions. So, anyone who has any interest, whether it’s in being on the team or helping to decide what poets we bring to campus as features for our soon-to-be-monthly slam events, should stop by Writers Bloc this Sunday in Usdan Room 110, which is on the main floor near the quick-mart version of upstairs from 4 – 5:30 (meeting will take place at end of Bloc) to hear what’s up and put their names down in the Book of Life.
