Aspiring writer events feature alumni, students, Meacham, Samudra
Aspiring writers may be interested in a pair of free public events Thursday (Nov. 5). The Humanistic Studies academic unit is sponsoring “Turning and Returning: A reading of Creative Work” from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. in the Union’s Christie Theatre. Alumnus Julie Strand will read from her poetry and other work. Joining her to read will be senior Jennifer Stallsmith, a creative writing major and editor-in-chief of the Sheepshead Review. From 5:15 to 7 p.m. in MAC 204 there will be a panel discussion on “Professional Opportunities in Getting Published.” Joining Strand in the discussion will be UW-Green Bay alumnus Morgan Bloohm, a copywriter for the Karma Group; professor Jaida Kim Samudra, who helped support herself through college by professional writing and was a “salon muse” for the Utne Reader; professor Rebecca Meacham, who is an award-winning fiction writer and adviser to Sheepshead Review; and Nik Garvoille, artist and graphic designer who publishes Knock, a Door County Arts Journal.
