New Semester, New Meeting

Hello! Welcome to a new semester, and a new group of fantastic writers to come together, consisting of both old and new faces. Come and greet these faces, old and new, this coming Wednesday, Feb. 4th! We’ll be meeting at 4 PM in Durham 201. We will learn once more who is interested in what, so we can better coordinate further times for meetings.

Also! We’re going to talk about the Poetry Blitz going on for The Review, SVU’s literary magazine, and possibly even working on something for that!

Whether or not poetry is your thing, though, please spread the word, and come at 4 on Wednesday! That way we can be sure to have lots more amazing meetings this semester~

A Brainstorm is Coming

November, as you may or may not know, is NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month. Try to write 50,000 words in a month. GO.

Some may be tackling this, some not, but undoubtedly we are all working on something or other. So this Saturday the 15th, at 2:30 in Durham 201, we shall have a meeting to gather together and brainstorm! Helping one another out with plot points, obstinate characters, and any other development you may wish for some input on. Shorts, novels, poetry, bring ’em all! We are going to gather for the benefit of all.

We will have a time limit for each person, so that everyone can get some help, but if everyone goes and there’s still time afterwards then we can return to things that we feel need more attention. So be prepared to share a short summary and/or pinpoint the problem you want addressed, so we can spend as much time as possible helping one another out.

This time limit will likely be from 10-15 minutes a person, but again, we can always come back to things after everyone’s had the opportunity to get help.

Remember, 2:30 on Saturday! Come with questions so we can all work on some answers.

Enjambment, the poetry group, will be meeting on October 18 at 1 PM at the Peristyles. (the Roman/Greek-looking colonnade between Main and Durham)

The Scrawlers, a group that dedicates time to simply putting words to paper, will meet on October 25th from 4-5 PM in the Lofts 1st Floor Lobby.

Those Muses who have yet to come up with a time, please email by next Friday! (That’s Oct 10th)

As for those mentioned above, please attend whichever ones you feel drawn to! There will likely be discussion of better meeting times for those interested at these first meetings, so get involved~

Notices of Note

So! The first week has begun! Schedules are getting worked out. All sorts of fun. And next week, there will be even more fun. Still working on the details, but sometime on the afternoon of Saturday the 6th of September there will likely be an Underground meeting; the first of the semester. Make sure you can be there if you are at all interested in finding out what kinds of things we do, can do, might or might not do, and give your input with it all! You’ll get to learn what sorts of schemes are in the works, and likely contribute a bit to them as well. Specific time will be posted as it becomes clearer.

Just as a precaution, bring along a pen or pencil. (which you probably do anyway, but there may be an activity requiring their use at the meeting~)


Now, not to forget The Review, the literary magazine in which students can get published (and earn prize money), there will be an interest meeting for that tomorrow, August 28th, at 6 PM in Durham 201. If that’s too soon of notice, there will be another meeting on September 4th at 4:30 PM in Durham 201. If publishing is of any interest to you, which it probably is, then join in at that time to learn more.


Bring your friends to these meetings, too! The more interest we can garner, the better attended will be activities and events, and more interaction means more results when you’re talking about brainstorming or writing things together. Plus, it’s tons of fun. Just look at some of the past posts to verify that.

And no matter what activities do or don’t happen, or whatever classes you take on, just keep writing. Write something, every day. Be it a little bit of homework you should probably get to before the day it’s due, or a blog you attempted to start a while ago, or maybe just some poetry for yourself, or a project you’ve been after for forever; do it. Writing every day is one sure way to at least make progress, if in nothing else than awareness of your writing style or word flow. Both of those are important to be able to work with, no matter your level.

Meet Once More

Classes have been going on for a while now, so I think it’s time we had another Underground meeting! The first meeting was rather under-attended, although considering it was the second week of school, such is understandable. This next meeting will be in Durham 201 on Wednesday the 9th from 5:30-6:30 PM. I know that there is interest on campus – come and join the Underground for some creative writing craziness!

Tell everyone you know, and invite them to come along! We’ll be doing an activity where numbers will make things more interesting. And try to bring a pen or pencil with you (as if you don’t always carry one anyway).
