  • What's Your Story? Creative Writing Connection

    Curious about what kind of story you might tell? Got a story that’s tapping at you to get out? Join this connection and get that story on the page. Open to first year students (with special encouragement for EOP, first generation, undocumented, writers of color, LGBTQIA, and transfer students), this FYAC invites you to come write your story. We’ll meet weekly to discuss stories and figure out what makes us want to read on, then practice applying our findings to our own stories. We’ll draft and share our work, offering supportive feedback to one another. The quarter will culminate in a class reading, during which you will have an opportunity to read part of your story to an audience. You do not need to have any previous creative writing experience to participate in this FYAC, just enthusiasm for practicing creative writing and willingness to share your story!

    Open to all new students

    • Time and Location: Wednesdays (3:10-4:00 pm); 2258 Dutton Hall
