Thanks to all the wonderful ProFro’s who checked out our table today during the Activities Fair in White Plaza. (We hope you decide to come to Stanford!).

If you missed us this afternoon, or are curious to find out more – we will also be at the English Department Open House tomorrow, from 1-3pm in Building 460 (Margaret Jacks Hall). Please feel free to come and talk to us there and to ask any questions you might have about our group, or about majoring or minoring in English (I highly recommend it – but, of course, I’m an English major, so I’m a bit biased! Come see for yourself!)

– Iris.

SOCA’s An Art Affair!

Come visit us tomorrow at SOCA’s “An Art Affair” – a campus arts festival that showcases visual, literary, and performing arts created by students and student groups.  Members Henry and Iris will be reading poetry at the Creative Writing event, to be held at 12 noon in Old Union Courtyard.  You can also catch us tabling throughout the afternoon (from 12 to 3:30).  Stop by and say hi, pick up a calendar of events for the quarter, and help contribute to a public poetry project that we’ll be hosting!

For more information about An Art Affair, please visit SOCA’s web site.

Welcome back to campus! Last quarter’s final reading was a smash hit – congrats to all the readers, and thanks to all of the audience members who came out to support us.  What follows is a bit of an update about some administrative changes that will be taking place this quarter.

First of all, we have some new acting officers (in addition to me).  Please welcome the very awesome:

Henry Leung – Vice President
Atha Fong – Financial Officer
Ada Yee – Calendar Administrator

You may see postings by each of these lovely people, from time to time.

We’ve also changed the format and schedule of meetings a little bit.  This quarter, there will be meetings every week rather than every other week.  We will be mostly alternating between straight “workshop” sessions (i.e. times for peer feedback) and what we’re now calling “craft seminars” (times for discussion and creative response – what we used to lump in under the name “workshop”).  There will, of course, still be special events – we plan on a performance at SOCA’s An Art Affair, a collaboration with the Asian American Theater Project, a special session with Prof. Shimon Tanaka of the Creative Writing Department, and another  end-of-quarter reading.  Please keep your eyes peeled as we update the Google Calendar.  A hard-copy calendar of events will be forthcoming soon.

As for this week, we’ve got two events:

1) Tuesday, 4/8 (tomorrow) Craft Seminar – collaborative poetry; led by Iris.  We’ll also be talking about tabling at  SOCA, so please come!  (6:30 pm in the 4th floor conference room of Margaret Jacks).

2) Friday – SOCA Art Affair.  Tabling and performances by Iris and Henry.

Hope to see you there!

– Iris
