Welcome (back) to campus, Wesleyan writers!
We hope you had fun, productive, writing- and reading-filled summers, and that you’re ready to tackle this semester head-on. And we’re here to help you do just that!
Keep an eye on the Workshop blog over the next few days–we’ll be posting information about the Writing Mentor Program (apply here), the Writing Workshop schedule (the Workshop opens this Sunday, September 9th) and upcoming writing-related events.
In the meantime, mark your paper deadlines on your calendar, check out the Russell House Fall 2012 Events Calendar, and enjoy the weekend!
