All things prose. Anything you want to discuss? Translation, problems with papers, letters you can’t bring yourself to write, expressions that puzzle you, books that you can’t finish (as a reader or a writer), anything to do with the word, the sentence or the paragraph.

Please come and discuss.

(Over a cup of coffee or glass of wine)

I hope you come,
Amy Bloom

In 2009, two alums, Shonni Silverberg ’76 and John Shapiro ’74 donated approximately one shit-ton (followed by another $3 million pledge last year march) to establish the Shapiro Creative Writing Center at Wesleyan. We should all send them a thank-you note, because even though a young entity on campus, the Shapiro Center is wonderful. In regard to the second gift:

“We were gratified that the university moved quickly and got this program launched and established,” Shapiro said. “I’ve had good feedback from people both at Wesleyan and elsewhere. It has generated a bit of a buzz.”

Bit of a buzz, yes. Enough of a buzz, no. More on what you can do at Shapiro after the jump!
