Boskone Outing

2 Feb

Hi, everyone! As I said in club on Wednesday, if there is enough interest, we could go to the sci fi/fantasy convention Boskone on Friday, Feb. 17, which is free to the public from 2-6pm. I myself have to be back on campus for a thing at 7pm.

Panels start at 2, so I would suggest we leave BU at 1, possibly slightly earlier, if we go as a group. If you have class, or none of the 2 o’clock panels interest you, you can certainly come whenever you feel like it. It is a little difficult to get to the location, the Westin Boston Waterfront Hotel, so if you decide to go on your own I can help you with directions! 🙂

Here is the schedule {remember, free only goes until 6 – meaning you can’t attend the 6 o’clock panels – even though I really want to! 😦 }: http://www.boskone.org/program-event/schedule/

Think about it over the week and at club next week let me know if you’re interested so we can get details together!

Have a great week! 😀    -Sarah

October Outing

21 Oct

Hi everyone! This Sunday will be our outing to Quincy Market/Faneuil Hall to do some writing exercises that involve people-watching. In other words: we’re going to be creepy and watch them without their knowledge.

We’ll meet BY 2:00 outside of 100 Bay State Road. Then we’ll take the T from Kenmore, so please bring either a Charlie Card or enough money to get there and back again. We’ll be doing some writing and note-taking, so bring a notebook and pencil or you can use your phone. Also, Faneuil Hall has A TON of food, so bring cash for writing snacks if you’d like.

Hope to see you Sunday!

-Sarah 🙂

Boston Teen Author Festival

22 Sep

Hey Creative Writing Club! This weekend will be our first outing of the year. As I said on Wednesday, most outings will not be this last-minute or be so long as this one.

Saturday is the Boston Teen Author Festival in Cambridge! Doors open at 9:30 am and the opening panel begins at 10, so we will be meeting BY 8:45 in front of 100 Bay State/Bay State dining hall (the side facing Kenmore Square, not Bay State Road). We will be taking the T from Kenmore to Park Street on the green line and then transferring to the red line to the Harvard stop. From there we will walk to the Cambridge Public Library, the site of the fest!

The festival is free (yay!) but please bring a Charlie Card or money for a Charlie Card (which you can get at Kenmore station) to pay for the trip on the T there and back. Also, there will be an opportunity to buy books and have them signed by the authors – credit and debit is accepted (you can also bring copies you already own to get signed). The festival does not provide lunch, so either pack some food or we can eat in Harvard Square, so you might also need money for that.

The last panel ends at 3:00 and then signing is from 3:15-5:00, so there is not a set time we will be leaving, we’ll play it by ear.

There will be 35 authors and 1o panels. We can each go to three panels, and you can choose which ones you would like. For a list of authors and panels, and for more info, check out their website: http://www.bostonteenauthorfestival.com

See you on Saturday!!!

“Meet-Cutes” Resource

3 Aug

Hey guys! I was looking up ways for characters to meet, sometimes called a “meet-cute” when it is a romantic pairing, and I found this Tumblr that lists a bunch, so I though I’d share.

Hope you’re having a great summer!
