Mount English students and faculty are responsible for the Celebrating Writing Week events on Wednesday, November 14. In addition to the daily Write Here. Right Now session facilitated by Susan Drain at 8:30 a.m. in Seton 404, we have a class live on Twitter from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. David Wilson’s WRIT 2220 class will be tweeting about visual representation, and you can follow along using #WRIT22. David Wilson’s twitter handle is @DavidRWilson1.
At 3:30, you are invited to our mead-hall, where you can hear the sounds of English poetry from over a thousand years ago. Anglo-Saxon Literature: Aloud and Alive will offer brief recitations by students in Anna Smol’s Old English class (translations provided!). You might even have a chance to learn a few words of Old English. Seton 404. 3:30 – 4:15 p.m. Light refreshments will be served. All are welcome. (Please note the corrected start time of 3:30 p.m.).
At 4:30, English students and faculty will gather for Blurbs: Conversations about Writing and Research, organized by Mackenzie Bartlett. Ever want to know what your fellow English majors and professors are spending their time researching? This event will feature students and faculty giving short, blurb-style talks about their research, from big-picture brainstorming to the more developed stages of composition. “Blurbs” offers an opportunity not only to try out your ideas with a friendly audience, but also to exchange thoughts, research tips, and other helpful pointers with your peers. Refreshments will be served. All members of the Mount community (staff, students, and faculty) are welcome to attend. Seton 404. 4:30-6:00 p.m.
