Good afternoon Deltans! Here for your convenience is the Sigma Tau Delta, Delta Delta chapter, weekly newsletter. If you know of any upcoming events, contests, or literary news, please share it with us and we will see about including it in an upcoming issue.
Have a great day!
The Write-Ins Begin
This Saturday will kick off our monthly Write-Ins, which will henceforth be on the third Saturday of every month, barring December because let’s face it, nobody is going to come after finals with the break about to start. Join us in Evans 358 at 10:00 with your laptop and/or writing materials ready to be creative. Writing prompts will be offered to those who would like one and I invite all attendees to bring their work to our Wednesday evening Writer’s Circles.
For those graduate students who cannot make to our first session because of Comps, we wish you all the best of luck!
The Writer’s Circle
Evans 460 at 5:30 Wednesday—bring copies of your work to be respectfully and constructively critiqued by your creative peers and talk writing over free coffee. I cannot say how proud I am of this group and how it has developed. Join us for a great time even if you don’t have anything to present.
Our Sister Chapter of the Southwest Region invites us to like their Facebook page and connect!
