Student & Alumni News and Werner Herzog at DePaul

What have our students and alumni been up to over break? Publishing lots of great stuff!

Congratulations to current student Zhanna Vaynberg (M.A.W.P.) who recently had a poem published in Burning Word Literary Magazine. Zhanna wrote her poem, “Bad Timing,” for Christine Sneed’s Eng 484 class last quarter. You can download “Bad Timing,” and the rest of Burning Word Issue 61 for free at burningword.com.

Congratulations also to alum Marianne McDonough-Chrisos (M.A.W.P. ’11) just had a Flash Fiction piece accepted to online literary magazine Literary Juice. Her short piece, “Thai Tea” can be read here.

And one last piece of exciting alumni news from Greg Schumaker (M.A.W.P. ’11). Greg is currently a regular contributor to the new blog In Our Words, which was founded by current DePaul student Nico Lang and DePaul alum Patrick Gill. Of course, we want to congratulate Greg, but Greg would also like to encourage other DePaul students and alumni– especially of the English programs– to consider submitting their work to In Our Words. For more information on submitting your writing to In Our Words, visit their contact page.

We’ve just gotten word of a very special event hosted by the DePaul School of Cinema and Interactive Media and open to DePaul students and alumni ONLY. Although it’s not directly related to the English programs, we know that many of you are great film lovers, and so we wanted to share this once-in-a-lifetime event.

The CIM Visiting Artists Series is proud to present an evening with

WERNER HERZOG

If you know Herzog and his work, you will probably want to be there in a heartbeat.

If not, this a rare opportunity to meet one of the living legends of cinema.

Herzog’s work is visionary, uncompromising, and iconoclastic.  He has consistently pushed the limits of cinema, both fiction and documentary, in ways that no other filmmaker has.

After four decades on the international film scene, he remains one of the most prolific and consistently challenging filmmakers working today.

A rare appearance.  Not to be missed.
