Writing’s really amazing because you don’t need any formal education to be a writer.
Seven students decided to pursue a creative writing degree anyway. At 5 p.m. today in Cheever Room of Finn House (the yellow house next to the post office), the Creative Writing Senior Seminar (myself included) will be reading excerpts from our creative capstone projects in completion of the Creative Writing Emphasis. There will also be refreshments!
