TOMORROW Thursday, May 10, we are having a bake sale and need volunteers. We have a table in the A building, outside the cafeteria, from 12-4. Let me know if you can sit at the table at any point during that time. Also, if you can bake something homemade to sell, that would be great! You can either bring it to Room B602, English & Speech between 11am and 12pm, or directly to the table in the A lobby at any time after that. Georgi will be there from 12-2, times until 4 are needed!

Secondly, we still need two members to volunteer for community service. This is to make sure that our budget is not cut! It doesn't take much time, and it's easy. Write to Georgi (at email above) and/or Professor Lemmon for details.

Thirdly, please write back to Professor Lemmon (with a cc to Georgi) if you are still interested in being in the club next year (and if you'll still be at FIT!). Also let us know if you would like to be Treasurer. Emma is going to be studying abroad in the fall, so we need someone new to take on the job!

From Page to Stage 101, Tuesday 3/20/12, 1-2pm Room D523

Our next special event is a wonderful workshop called "Page to Stage 101," featuring Taylor Mali and Marie-Elizabeth Mali.

The skills involved in writing a good poem are not identical to the skills required to perform a poem well, and the world is split between people who would rather hear a terrible performance of a brilliant poem and those who would rather hear a brilliant performance. Period. So let's say you've written a brilliant poem. Now what? Four-time National Poetry Slam Champion Taylor Mali, and Marie-Elizabeth Mali, co-producer of the Page Meets Stage reading series at the Bowery Poetry Club, have some tips, tricks, and techniques that will help you make your poems go in one ear of your audience. . . and stay there.
