OT is having its first craft seminar this Thursday, Oct. 30th.  Please join us in Margaret Jacks Hall, rm 429 at 6:30pm. I’ll be leading a workshop on “characters” in fiction and writing in general.

How do you bring someone to life using only words?
Why is it that some characters haunt us long after we’ve put the book down?
Where do characters come from?
Is there a difference between being a character and being human?
Are YOU a character?

For a hearty discussion of such questions and more, come Thursday with a pen, paper, and favorite persona (or imaginary friend! =]). You will be doing some writing.  Should be fun!

Hope to see you there,

Vice President

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!
