From Rachel Sobelsohn ’17:
Calling all students who want to learn more about the gluten-free diet, want to go gluten-free, or are already gluten-free! SWAG is dedicated to increasing awareness of the gluten-free diet and its benefits, discussing the challenges of a gluten-free diet, and working to overcome those challenges. SWAG discusses the varying degrees of sensitivity of people on the gluten-free diet and what you never knew had gluten in it, along with some delicious and safe alternatives. SWAG will create a support network of other gluten-free students to share recipes, food, complaints and ideas. Bring your gluten-free lovely selves, and we’ll provide the goodies.

Date: Wednesday, November 6

Aviva Markowitz ’12 writes in with a delicious way to prove to everyone that, yes, you can cook. (Look at it as a chance to prove to all your friends that hot pocket/gummy worm sandwiches were only a
one time six-and-a-half-time thing). Friends with Knives, a Wesleyan recipe zine, is sending out the call for all of your (mom’s) favorite recipes:
Do you have a favorite recipe? Do you cook something that your friends always want? Are you dying to be published but don’t write poetry?
We want your recipes so we can share it with the campus! And then we can all learn to cook it!
Please send your recipe submissions to amarkowitz(at)wesleyan(dot)edu before May 1st. Then they will be compiled with two parts sugar, illustrated with a dash of salt, and printed hot and ready before Foodstock.
Due: May 1
Place: over the interwebs
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.
