The MCLA workshop has a new name and day!

Come to the Tea and Calligraphy workshop at Inkberry. Enjoy a cup of tea and good company and bring a piece to read and workshop; it is free! Workshop your poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction with fellow student writers outside of the classroom. Whether your aim is to finish a work in progress, revise a draft, or read your work for a class or publication, this forum will connect you with other college aged writers who can help you grow as a writer.

The workshop is hosted by Inkberry Workshop Facilitator intern, Sarah Russell, for more information contact her at Sarah@inkberry.org


Talking about John Dicker

March 3, 2006

Avid Inkberryphiles may remember that we brought John Dicker, author of The United States of Wal-Mart, here last week; we presented him in a pair of events at Williams College and MCLA. His visit got some good press, which is exciting.

John’s visit was blogged in advance here at greylocknews, and there’s a great writeup by Andrew McKeever in the MCLA Beacon.

The Beacon article — called Union Blues — includes a color photo of John speaking at Smith House, and offers some terrific quotes from John’s talk.

“Wal-Mart doesn’t care what people who don’t shop there think,” said Dicker. “They totally got into the P.R. game late. They realized that their public image affects the bottom line.”

When asked about the future of Wal-Mart, Dicker stated, “I see them maxing out. I also see them changing their format…”

If you weren’t there and want to get a sense for what you missed, check out the link (we hope to reprint the article in our press archive, but at the moment it’s still online at the Beacon site, so you can check it out there.) Thanks for the press, guys!
