Writing House and Interfaith House still accepting apps!

So this post is pretty damn self-explanatory, but here’s the info anyway:

Alicia Fuhrman ’12 writes in:

Last call for Writing House applications to vie for the final spots available in the glorious 23-person community. If the mass of wonderful and possibly like-minded individuals does not appeal, perhaps the spacious lounge(s), library, kitchen, courtyard, and air of creative encouragement will. Link follows. Deadline for open bidding is March 31 at 5PM, but obviously the sooner you submit the sooner you will hear back (hopefully with an offer).


On a side note, if you’re not interested in being a resident but still want to be in on the goings-on, several author visitors (whose writings span from food politics and feminism to fiction) are on the radar for the coming months, and the compilation of the alphabetic cookbook is also in the works. Stay tuned for some more faculty workshop opportunities as well. Email afuhrman(at)wesleyan(dot)edu should any questions surface.

Deena Godfrey ’12 retorts, saying

GRS IS SCARY!!!!! Apply to Interfaith House!

Why go through the crazy process of GRS where you can easily live in a wonderful community with awesome people and great facilities? Interfaith House has organized major all-campus events such as the Fast-a-thon, Park51 panel discussion, Tibetan Singing Bowl Meditation, and the Winter Festival!

We have a huge kitchen, our own laundry room, and a decked out lounge with a ping-pong table, piano, and bean-bags!

If you’re interested in living in this awesome house next year, email dgodfrey(at)wesleyan(dot)edu.

We Need Your Noms (Recipes) by Spring Break

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!


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.
