The LITERARY CIRCLE is now a BI-WEEKLY AFFAIR!

The El Centro College Literary Circle is looking to grow our membership numbers during the 201-2015 school year. If you are a creative writer or have always wanted to become one, if you love books and want to talk about them, this is the club for you. 

We envision our meetings to be informal in nature and take many forms: peer critiques, “open mic” sharing of works or works-in-progress, book club discussions, and movie screenings. 

UPDATED Fall 2014 Meeting Dates:

September 18th: pizza and BYO(Book) swap and discussion

October 2nd: TBD (…but you should show up anyway)

October 16th: join in on a game of Apples to Apples

October 30th: TBD (Halloween-themed)

November 13th: sharing of poems, short stories, works in progress.

November 20th: book club discussion, American Born Chinese by Gene Leun Yang (with pie!)

All meetings will start at 2:15pm in room B275 and are open to all members of the El Centro community. 

Also, if you are a responsible, personable leader and are interested in serving the club in the form of the president, vice-president, secretary, treasurer, etc. please contact Professor Samantha Schulze (club sponsor and English faculty) at sschulze@dcccd.edu. 

THIS THURSDAY: LITERARY CIRCLE MEETING - FIRST OF THE TERM

The ECC Literary Circle will host its first meeting of the fall 2014 semester THIS THURSDAY, September 18th at 2:15pm in B275.

The meeting will take the form of a BYO(Book) swap. So, bring a book to lend, borrow a book, or recommend a book. Last spring, it was great to get to know one another a little better through a glimpse at each other’s bookshelves.

Also, PIZZA.

LAST LIT CIRCLE MEETING OF THE SEMESTER - APRIL 14th!

The last ECC Literary Circle meeting will be on Monday, April 14th from 2:15-3:30pm in room B274. We’ll be discussing Drown by Junot Diaz, The Schwa Was Here by Neal Shusterman, and/or whatever else strikes our fancy. Also…there will be pie! 

Friday, April 11th from 7-9pm. OPEN MIC at Daverse Lounge. This is an off-campus, community event held at the Life in Deep Ellum building. Those interested are asked to read/recite work in a supportive, creative argument. Contact Professor Schulze (sschulze@dcccd.edu) for more information!

MARCH 20th MEETING - BOOK SWAP

Swing by Half Price Books, pick up a cheap paperback copy of one (or two) of your favorite books, and bring it (them) to our next meeting on Thursday, March 20th at 2:15pm in B275 for an old-fashioned book swap. Fingers crossed, Professor Schulze will figure out how to get a couple of pizzas to the meeting as well. See you!

Lit Circlers! We will be meeting in B275 a week from today on Thursday, February 20th at 2pm to watch the Triplets of Belleville and talk SPRING events.
