Have you ever wondered what kind of work your fellow students and faculty write? Well your chance to hear from some of them is coming soon! On Wednesday, October 21st, at 7 p.m. the English Department is having its first ever Faculty & Student Reading Series. The series will be online via Microsoft Teams and run to about 8:30. The readers for this series include Elizabeth Asmus, Amelia Boylan-Knorr, Dr. Rebeca Meacham, and August Wiegman. Each reader will have between 10-15 minutes to read their work.
Dr. Case, one of the professors who put this together, gave a bit of insight as to why she and Dr. Williams decided to put together this reading series:
“Dr. Williams and I came up with the idea to have a student & faculty reading series for a few reasons. Mainly, we’re excited about the idea of showcasing faculty and student work and providing a platform for UWGB writers to talk with one another about their creative interests and inspirations. Readings are a huge part of the creative writing community and having a regular event that gives people the chance to share the things they’re creating with the university and the larger community seems so important, particularly right now, when everyone is more isolated than usual.

Hope to see you there!
