The Notebook: Week One of Writing Lab
Join faculty librarian, Stokley Towles, for his first 'writing lab' workshop of the academic year. Stokley's workshops are open to all and have been praised by students, staff, and faculty alike as "my favorite part of the week" and "an oasis in the frenzy of school work."
The "Notebook" workshop consists of a 30-minute talk and 45+ minutes of writing exercises. The talk is based on interviews with writers, artists, researchers, and thinkers who engage notebooks in a variety of ways—map making, sketching ideas, transcribing quotes from their reading, and drawing. The writing exercises demonstrate different ways to use a notebook—freewriting, taking inventory, list making, directed freewriting—to generate material.
Writing Lab happens on Wednesdays from 10:00am - 11:20am for (at least) the first five weeks of the quarter. All Evergreen students, staff, and faculty are welcome.
