Join The Writer’s Guild and Learn the Language of Student Organizations!

Today we have two announcements from our friends and classmates at the University Center for Writing-based Learning about some great new opportunities to improve your writing– and your student organization– this Winter Quarter.

Now that Winter Quarter is underway, it’s time for the return of The Writers Guild, DePaul’s student creative writing group! The Writer’s Guild meets every Wednesday from 7:30-9pm in the Arts & Letters lobby on the Lincoln Park campus. Participants will be able to collaborate both with other writers and an UCWbL peer writing tutor and receive reader-based, revision-orientated feedback on their work. The Writers Guild is an excellent way to focus your creative energy and encourage yourself and your fellow group members to keep going on that difficult project. We welcome writers to participate as often as they can, whether that’s once a month or every week. Alumni are also welcome to join us.

If you’re planning to submit to Threshold this year (deadline February 10th, 2012), the Writers Guild would be a great place to whip your piece into submission-worthy shape!

If you have any questions about how to get involved in The Writers Guild, contact Claire Rooney, Assistant Coordinator for the Writing Groups at


Are you in a student organization? Do you like free pizza and t-shirts? Do you need something to do in the afternoon on Friday, January 27?

If you answered “YES!!!” to any of the following questions, please join the University Center for Writing-based Learning on  Friday, January 27 from 2:30-6:30pm in room 325 of the Lincoln Park Student Center for the first installment of the 3-part series “Writing the Mission.”

The first event in this series, “The Role of Language in Student Organization Development” is a workshop where members of any student organization can bring their organization’s constitution, marketing materials, correspondences with administration, or other written documents and discuss how they are crafted and perceived, and collaborate on improving and further developing them.

All members of student organizations and other interested friends are welcome. And remember: Free Pizza! Free T-shirts!

This event is made possible by a grant from the MLK Jr Celebration Awards, provided by the Office of Institutional Diversity and Equality.

All questions can be sent to Julia Harding at or RSVP on Facebook, or just show up.
