The Rhode Island State Council on the Arts is exhibiting their Fellows’ work at the Pawtucket Arts Collaborative Mill Gallery through March 28th. What’s better than that? The exhibition’s Writers and Composers Night!
This Friday, March 7th, 6-8pm, come hear Literature Fellowship award winners share their work in playwriting, fiction, and poetry, followed by performances by Musical Composition Fellows. Don’t forget to show up early and check out the gallery.
Free and open to the public. Click the poster below for more details.
A little bird told us that Clerestory, a collaborative publication of RISD and Brown undergraduate work, wants more RISD writing submissions — this means you! Don’t miss the next deadline: Thursday, February 20. See poster below for more information.
One whole afternoon. Three events. Writing inspired by art. Art inspired by writing.
It’s no fantasy; it’s SHOW TELL/TELL SHOW: A Half-day of Events on the Subject of Ekphrasis. And it all takes place Thursday, February 6, 2014. Check out the poster below for details, and get ready to dive into what we’re all about.
The RISD Writing Center is excited about two upcoming events that explore writing’s role in forging new paths.
Fleet Library is throwing a zine reading party in coordination with their current exhibition, Zines: By the People For the People. Come share your work, your collection, and your love of the self-published genre.
Rick Benjamin, Rhode Island Poet Laureate and RISD Literary Arts & Studies Senior Lecturer, is facilitating a workshop as part of the RISD LEADS series. Join in to explore social justice and what it means to “lead” — all through the lens of the written word.
Wintersession is a time for special projects, exploring interests, and getting a head start on things to come.
If you’re looking for something to dive into, check out our Wintersession workshops. Click the posters below for details and see our Workshops page for a calendar view.
The RISD Writing Center is happy to present a new handout for students who want to share their work beyond campus. We collaborated with Taylor Polites of the Literary Arts and Studies department to provide some tips for students interested in publishing their writing (and other works). The handout also lists some of our favorite opportunities to submit work.
Check out these Resources for Publishing Your Work, which you can always find on our Handouts page. We’ll continue to update the list as we discover even more exciting publications, like these:
Wednesday, November 6th, 12:15-1:00 PM
Come write fortunes for your fellow students. Will they ace a big test? Will they get that Wintersession internship? Will love find them in studio? You decide! Plus, we’ll have a variety of cookies for you to snack on while you write.
If you find your inspiration later, you can come in to contribute fortunes all month long. In December, we’ll put your messages into fortune cookies and hand them out during finals.
Thanks to the Center for Student Involvement’s RISD 360° program for teaming up on this fun event.
Friday, November 8th, 6:30-8:00 PM
Start off your weekend with the second Readings in the Writing Center event this year. Join us to hear the works and works-in-progress of RISD faculty members Rick Benjamin and Gareth Jones. Click on the poster above for more information.
We look forward to seeing you there!
