Are you looking for a quiet, charming place to inspire creative writing? For a well-appointed study room to work with friends on group projects and problem sets? Mathey has good news for you! This summer, we are creating a Writers Studio on the third floor of Blair Tower.
The student-run Writers Studio will hold drop-in writing hours, peer-based workshops, conversations with published writers, and advice on getting published. Creative writers of all literary persuasions are welcome to use the space. Resources for writers will be available, including pencil and paper, and such magazines as Poets & Writers, McSweeney’s, and The Paris Review. Email the student managers, Maria (mcury@) and Mirabella (mirabel@) and let them know what you would like to see there!
The Writers’ Workshop is hosting a dinner discussion with Professor Sophie Gee on Thursday, March 4th, in the Mathey PDR.
Sophie Gee is the author of a newly released historical novel, The Scandal of the Season, a literary romance set in eighteenth-century London. A story of forbidden attraction and secret ambition plays out against a backdrop of teeming street-life and glorious buildings, masked balls, operas and eating house…s, clandestine courtships and political intrigue.
Professor Gee is an Assistant Professor in the English Department, where she teaches classes on 18th century poetry and novels and on the history of English and America satire.
