October 20, 2017
On Friday, October 20th, students had the opportunity to participate in several writing related activities hosted by the various writing-focused organizations on campus.

The Collegian and the Washington College Review both had their works on display for students to look through. Next to them, The Elmhad its own game of Scrabble for students to attempt to win pencils and even a notebook depending on their total points.

Clubs, like the Writers’ Union and Poetry Club, gave out writing prompts, such as writing stories based off of famous first and last lines. College departments were present as well: the Admissions blog took photos of people writing down their favorite thing about Washington College, while the Alumni House gave students the opportunity to write thank you notes to donors of scholarships. Finally, the Writing Center challenged students to match up famous first lines by author in the chance to win a free t-shirt.
