Meet with a Writing Center tutor online tonight

submitted by groeneve@augsburg.edu

The Augsburg Writing Center is offering online instruction for students taking summer courses. The Online Writing Center allows you to video conference with a tutor and receive one-on-one feedback on your writing from a peer tutor. We use a combination of Zoom (for the video conference) and Google Docs (for you to share your draft with the tutor). As is true during an in-person session, you and the tutor will have a collaborative conversation about your draft during the online meeting.

Appointments are available Tuesdays 6:00-7:30pm and Wednesdays 4:00-5:30pm. For more information about this service and instructions for making an appointment, please see our Online Writing Center FAQ (linked below) or email Sarah Groeneveld Kenney (groeneve@augsburg.edu). For any other questions about the Writing Center, please email Jennifer Forsthoefel (forsthj@augsburg.edu).

MFA Visiting Writers

Please join us for the following event hosted by the MFA Program

submitted by matthewk@augsburg.edu

Panel: Awarding Value
Julia M. Brown, Sherrie Fernandez-Williams, and Shannon Gibney
Co-Moderated by Alayne Hopkins and Lindsay Starck
Saturday, July 20, 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
Hagfors 150

From the Pushcart Prize to the Pulitzer Prize, from the “Best American” series to the Minnesota Book Awards, it’s clear that literary communities are constantly comparing, judging, and awarding value. What does it mean to evaluate a text or a writer? How do we determine which book, fellowship application, script, or screenplay is the best? To what degree is literary appreciation subjective, and what criteria do we use to make these judgments? After we hear from a panel of writers who have judged and/or been judged, Jim Cihlar, publisher of Augsburg’s Howling Bird Press, will provide an overview of how the MFA student editors choose our annual prize winner and do the work of publishing and promoting the resulting book.

Julia M. Brown is Artistic Programs Administrator at the Playwrights’ Center.

Shannon Gibney won the 2019 and 2016 Minnesota Book Award in Young Peoples’ Literature.

Alayne Hopkins is Assistant Director of Programs & Services at The Friends of the Saint Paul Public Library, overseeing the statewide activities of the Minnesota Center for the Book, which include the Minnesota Book Awards program and other initiatives.

Lindsay Starck is associate director of Augsburg’s MFA program.

Campus Share Shop at Augsburg, Check it Out

submitted by keenern@augsburg.edu

Members of the Environmental Stewardship Committee and Campus Cupboard are coming together to create a Campus Share Shop for the students of Augsburg! Our purpose is to create a space where students can check out goods they need, rather than purchasing new items. By doing this, we hope to:
-Reduce the consumption of material goods
-Reduce students’ costs
-Create a community space where students can take part in informal learning around sustainable practices and skill-sharing.

This is a project created by students for students, so we are reaching out to you to find out what you would want to see in the share shop. Please take a few minutes to take a short survey that will aid in creating a share shop that will properly serve the students of Augsburg.
