Travel Writing workshop participants

Students, faculty, and staff members joined Professor Stephanie Verni for a Travel Writing Workshop designed to enhance their ability to write about their travels. Verni has taught courses in travel writing in which she requires students in the class to travel somewhere and write about it, in both descriptive and reflective forms. The workshop was co-sponsored by the Stevenson library and held in the Learning Commons lab as a part of the Arts Alive! initiative.
