Dr. Casey will be heading a workshop on Saturday March 16th 12pm-3pm on WCSU’s midtown campus (Room number TBA). Not only will this workshop be a great opportunity to learn about placing work from WCSU’s Freelance Writing instructor, the session counts toward residency fulfillment.
MFA On-Campus Workshop
Saturday, 16 March, 12 noon to 3 pm
Research Once, Write Twice (or More):
How to Turn Your Thesis Topic into Multiple Works
Freelance writers have long adhered to the adage “research once, write twice” to
extend their earnings. One experience or interview can be spun into assignments
for multiple venues, creating revenue in the form of many articles while
limiting research time. For MFA and MA students working on a thesis, this can
mean transforming your research and writing into magazine, newspaper or academic
articles. In this workshop, we will focus on how to get more mileage out of
your research and work in ways that will improve your academic profile and,
possibly, your financial situation as well.
As Dr. Casey would say, “This class pays dividends.”
In addition to Dr. Casey’s workshop, Dr. Clements is offering a workshop on March 11: The Anthology Wars: Movements, Influence, and Cliques in American Poetry
Prof. Clements will lecture on taxonomies of Modern and Contemporary American Poetry and lead discussion and exercises on Monday, March 11 from 5:30 to 8:00. Current MFA students, prospective MFA students, and Writing majors are invited to attend. Current MFA students may use this event as a workshop counted toward residency credits. RSVP to Prof. Clements.
