A creative event for alumni and friends of all ages!

College of Humanities and Social Sciences

Zoom Event

Join CHSS alumni and explore the world of creative writing with assistant professor of English, and Mason alum Art Taylor, as he hosts an interactive and fun session for all ages. Featuring MFA in Creative Writing alumnus Matthew Norman and current third-year student Kyra Kondis. The audience will help select a sentence that will launch a story and a sentence that concludes it. Then these guest wordsmiths will be challenged to forge fiction on the fly. Audience members can also try their hand at the challenge. We'll hear some of your storytelling attempts, then listen to what our guest authors created. Non-writers are especially welcome. This event is part of the MFA in Creative Writing's 40th Anniversary Celebration and Mason Homecoming 2021.
