JC Writing Club
The purpose of the JC Writing Club is to provide a supportive environment where creative writers can learn, write, share, and improve. The goal is to nurture confident, successful writers with publishing credits.
The JC Writing Club meets once a month as a large group on the first Tuesday of September, October, November, February, March, and April from 3-4 p.m. in an ASI small lecture hall, usually room 115. Small break-out writing workshop groups (i.e. a prose group, a poetry group) meet at least once a month during a time, day, and place that is mutually agreed upon by the writing group. For students who prefer virtual meetings, the club supports a Blackboard page where work can be posted and discussed.
At monthly large meetings, guest speakers will provide information about writing in general. Students will also have the opportunity to read works-in-progress during the "open mic" portion of the meeting. There is time for one page of work per reader.
Annually in the spring, it is the goal of the group to print a literary magazine that accepts submissions from students, faculty, and staff of Jefferson College. The publication of this magazine will be celebrated with a public reading event to be held in late April.
Additional events may include attendance at writing conferences.
