One of the great activities we can take advantage of in 2008 occurs right during the first week of class! The Association of Writers and Writing Programs (AWP) is holding their annual convention here in NYC from Jan. 30-Feb. 2! Click here for the conference web page, which has links to the preliminary schedule of events. There will also be panel presentations, readings, and discussions throughout the day.
The English & Speech Department is signing up for an affiliate membership with AWP, so that means FIT students can attend the entire conference (including all events, day and evening)for a discounted rate of $35 each. Active members who participate in fund-raising and community service will be able to go as a field trip paid for by the club!
