North Falls, Indiana Book Release
4:00-5:15 in DW 3001
North Falls, Indiana was written, designed, edited, and published by students in W301 Fiction Writing. It features linked locations, characters, and events in the imagined town of North Falls, Indiana. Inspired by Winesburg, Ohio and Winesburg, Indiana, the first part of the book introduces the characters/grotesques through short narratives and archival documents including diaries, letters, newspaper accounts, to-do lists, and police reports. The second part takes place on Halloween 2015 when a series of tornadoes devastate North Falls.
Here are some images from projects by Kelcey Parker’s A399 Narrative Collage students. Stay tuned for links to Margaret Chapman’s and Alessandra Rolff’s A190 online literary journals, as well as a collection of essays by Kelcey Parker’s W250 class. These class activities are part of the Center for Excellence in Literary Arts & Publishing initiative (see tab above).
The semesterly Student Reading & Exhibit is taking place Thursday 12/8 from 8:30-3:00 p.m. in DW 3001.
(It actually kicked off already with a reading by Alessandra Simmons Rolff’s A190 students, who read from the two literary journals that they created and self-published.)
There will be readings by four classes in a row, and there will be a display of 2-D Self-Portrait Collages (see recent posts for images), Collage Journals, and individual books – written and published by students – from Kelcey Parker’s A399 class, a book published by her W250 class, and a computer projecting an image of online literary journals created by Margaret Chapman’s A190 classes.
Please feel free to drop in during the readings and to have a look around as we celebrate our students’ accomplishments in creative writing, narrative collage, and literary publishing!
All classes contribute to the Creative Writing Minor (click tab above) and are part of the Center for Excellence in Literary Arts & Publishing initiative.
