Congratulations again to the LC Emerging Writers! Here is a great piece that our Communications department wrote about the event. The article also provides a link to excerpts of student work.
The staff at the Katharine Brush Library congratulate the students who participated in the first annual Emerging Writers event on September 20th at the Richmond Arts Center. Emerging Writers celebrates the literary arts on campus by displaying diverse works drawn from independent summer-writing portfolios produced by Loomis Chaffee students. The student pieces on display include works of poetry and prose.
The opening took place alongside Emerging Artists and the opening of Cuba on the Brink: Arrested Development by Hank Paper at The Sue and Eugene Mercy Jr. Gallery.
The month of November can be a stressful time for many students at Loomis Chaffee; finals are just around the corner, and tests abound. However, it is just as important to take a step back and enjoy your free time, and what better way to relax than to partake in some writing? November is Academic Writing Month (AcWriMo), an event established by Charlotte Frost challenging writers to surpass a self-set writing goal during November. This event is based on the National Novel Writing Month (known as NaNoWriMo, also in November) initiated by Chris Baty. Although you do not have to participate in these web-based competitions, you can use their example as inspiration to have a thoughtful, imaginative November!
