Morningside College students will share journals from their May Term travels at Morningside College at noon Friday, Sept. 23, in the Hickman Dining Room in the Olsen Student Center, 3609 Peters Ave. The event is part of Morningside’s Friday is Writing Day series.
Friday is Writing Day (FIWD) meets most Fridays throughout the fall semester from noon to 12:50 p.m. The program, which has been in existence for over 20 years, is designed to feature writers and their works, from journals to published pieces.
Writers of all types from the campus and community read their work, followed by informal discussions of the writings. All of the sessions are free and open to the public. Participants are invited to bring a brown bag lunch or purchase lunch in the college cafeteria.
