I know this isn’t really writing-related (but it is, because we’re all nerdy), but I found this recently and thought it might be appreciated. Good luck with finals everyone!



End of Semester: Time to Party!

4 Dec

Hello one and all,

That’s right, we’ve arrived (at last) at the end of the fall semester! We’ve had an absolutely wonderful time getting to know you all these past couple of months; thank you for making our club the funky, fun, and fabulous writerly hodgepodge that we all know and love.

Gushing over, let’s get down to business. And by business, I mean a party: That’s right CWC will be having a nice, relaxed, no-stress celebration on Saturday,┬áDecember 12th, 2015 at 5pm in BU Central so mark your calendars, folks. We’ll have our favorite wordy, creative board/card games (Anomia, anyone? Trust me; it’s a blast) and probably most likely sweets and treats. If you’d like to contribute an appropriate game and/or consumable food item, feel free to do that. We look forward to unwinding in your lovely company from the madness that the final weeks of a semester invariably bring.

If you need any more information, ask away here in the comments, on the Facebook page, through the email, or at the next meeting on 12/9.

Hope to see you there!
