The English Club is following up its Involvement Fest recruitment and English Club Social with its first Fall Event: Hobbit Days! We are sponsoring a 2-day event at Murphy Library (Sunday & Monday 2:30-8:30pm), where we will be showing The Lord of the Rings films, playing Fantasy-themed film & story Trivia, and offering some hobbit-snacks for those hungry times between second breakfast and first dinner.
On Thursday, December 6th, from 4:00-6:00pm the English Club will be hosting a fireside reading of poetry (or a paragraph from any other favorite fictional story or non-fiction essay) at the Myrick-Hixon Gun Club Shelter. We will provide hot beverages and some treats to share.
The semester seems to be in overload mode and the La Crosse community is buzzing with activity. As anyone who follows American politics can see, the nation is pulsing with more and more energy the closer we get to November. Why not turn that energy into creativity? For this semester's edition of The Catalyst we would love to hear your voice. Therefore, this semester's theme is "The Choice is Yours!" During this busy election season, everyone has something to say. Avoiding mud slinging and various other negative political tactics can be difficult; focusing on personal views is nearly impossible. Show us how creative you can be with your views!
As always, we will be happy to accept submissions outside of the theme.
Please submit your work by November 6th to firstname.lastname@example.org. Feel free to direct any questions, comments, or concerns to this address as well.
* All photos and artwork should be submitted in .jpeg format. Please send music by way of a YouTube link. If this is not possible, please contact us and we will try to work around the issue.
** The Catalyst is an independent journal and does not discriminate against the views of artists regardless of race, religion, political affiliation or sexual orientation. Please respect the opinions of fellow artists as you would your own views.
On Wednesday, October 26th, the English Club is sponsoring a Book Club event open to ANY interested students and faculty. We will be discussing Edgar Allan Poe's "The Tell-Tale Heart." Please share this event with your friends and students--and feel free to join us.
We will gather at the Cyber Cafe from 5:30-7pm on 10/26. More information and a copy of the story are available on the Book Club's Facebook page:
The fall 2010 online edition of The Catalyst will soon be published, and we want your work in it! Our theme this semester is “Turning the Page,” and will feature your short stories, poetry, videos, art, photography or music that expresses a new chapter in your life. Be it a challenge or a joy— if it shapes you, we would like to hear about it.
