A Conversation And Reading With...

Organized and hosted by Bethany's literary magazine, Inkwell, the Conversation And Reading With... series brings published authors to Bethany's campus to discuss and answer questions about their experiences and writing processes, as well as give readings from recent works. All students at Bethany are invited to attend these events, which are held twice each semester, to gain knowledge from a leading author in Mankato. The speakers provide students with an inside look at their profession and offer advice about how best to prepare for entry into the job market.

Upcoming Speakers Include:

Candance Black, MSU English Professor

21-Day Writing Challenge

Also organized by Inkwell is a writing challenge open to all students. The writing challenge takes place every November, and offers a prize to any students who complete all 21 days of writing. Prompts for writing are given out every day, but students are not required to follow the prompt. All students have to do is write at least 400 words every day and submit it to Inkwell via email. The writing can take place in any genre, including fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. Four makeup days are offered following the challenge to accomodate writers who are unable to write every single day. These makeup days will be counted for any days missed during the writing days.
