Do the Write Thing

Your mother always taught you to do the right thing and follow your dreams. If your dream is to become a published author, Northeast Campus has something you may want to jump on.

At the sixth annual two-day “Do the Write Thing Workshop,” founded by author and Northeast English Instructor Shewanda Riley, students and faculty can improve their writing skills with a variety of educational sessions.  Sessions include:

  • 50 Shades of Writing
  • Poetry Writing Institute
  • Digital Publishing, and
  • Writing Fantasy Fiction

If you’re really up for perfecting your skills, you can also attend the manuscript critique sessions.

This year’s featured speakers are national spoken word artist Michael Guinn and Urania Fung, a fantasy fiction author. Other Northeast faculty speakers include English Adjunct instructors Ruel Macaraeg and Lorna Scaife, and Associate Reading Professor Rita Wisdom.
