Excerpt from Article

To celebrate the National Day on Writing, the department brought students and faculty in front of Lakeside Cafe to share the art of writing while enjoying pizza. The pizza was a way to get students to want to come and write, but turned out not being the most important aspect of the project.

"It's important for people to express their creativity," said Lynn Hamilton, lecturer for the writing and linguistics department. "Students are not doing it for the pizza, but because they enjoy it."

Speaking of her piece, Marti McCrory, junior political science major said, "I hope someone reads it and it inspires them to write or it helps them out in some way."
