English Creative Writing Majors in the World: Alumni Share Their Wisdom, Experiences, and Advice

Tuesday, April 8, at 5 p.m., Auerbach Hall 425

All are invited to meet with and hear from nine University of Hartford alumni from the English, Creative Writing, B.A. Program about their experiences since graduation, both in creative writing and in the world of work. Each will briefly outline the career paths they have taken since they graduated and we will discuss ways their undergraduate studies in the liberal arts, English, and creative writing prepared them for diverse jobs, lives, and the world.

What do they wish they had done differently? What advice do they have for current undergraduate students and for those who are about to graduate? Don’t miss this excellent opportunity to hear from those who have come before you about the ways to make the most of your undergraduate education in English and Creative Writing!

Question and answer session to follow. Light refreshments will be served.
