Clark Writes asks campus 'What are you writing?'

November 2, 2016
Clark Writes blog asked students, faculty and staff what they were writing. This is a collage of the answers.

"Poetry!" "Research manuscript!!" and "Wonderfully creative nonsense" were just a few of the answers the Clark Writes editors received when they asked the Clark community to answer the question "What are you writing?" on a picturesque September afternoon in Red Square.

Students of all majors, and even some faculty and staff, jotted their answers on a whiteboard and posed for a photo, proudly declaring their work on novels, essays, music, journalism, blogs and letters. The results were used to create a collage showing how important writing is to everyone at the University.

Clark Writes, the official blog of Clark’s English Department, is proud to showcase the work of students, faculty and alumni. The group also hosts creative writing forums and other department-sponsored events, and organizes various creative writing contests throughout the year.
