Alumni at Story Week    

 
Members of the general public can register for this workshop by emailing Chris DeGuire at cdeguire@colum.edu.

Itching to get that story start down on paper? Miss the energy you felt from other writers in the semi-circle? We’ve got the solution! Join us as we kick off Story Week 2013 with free workshops for Columbia College Fiction Writing alumni. John Schultz, Betty Shiflett, and Deb Lewis will lead Story Workshop mini-classes from 2:00 – 4:30 PM on Sunday, March 17, 2013, at Columbia College, 624 S. Michigan, up on the 12th floor.

After the workshops, catch up with old friends, or make new ones at a special alumni-only networking reception at Buddy Guy’s Legends, 700 S. Wabash, 2nd floor, co-sponsored by the Fiction Writing Department and the Office of Alumni Relations. From 5 – 6:30 PM you will be able to enjoy a food buffet, drinks, exchange stories, and network with your fellow writers.

At 6:30 PM, doors open to the public, and an evening hosted by 2nd Story’s Megan Stielstra and Bobby Biedrzycki begins. The night features stories by Chris DeGuire, Ames Hawkins, Ann Hemenway, and Cyn Vargas. DJ White Russian and Seeking Wonderland provide music and sound effects. Visit colum.edu/StoryWeek for the week's complete schedule or 2ndstory.com to learn more about 2nd Story.

Members of the general public can register for this workshop by emailing Chris DeGuire at cdeguire@colum.edu.

We hope you’ll join us for this special alumni celebration! An RSVP for the fiction workshops is required, as seating is limited. For questions or more information, contact Story Week Assistant Artistic Director Chris DeGuire at cdeguire@colum.edu.
