You’ve seen it everywhere else, but here it is again: TOMORROW is the launch party for our very own The Word Hoard‘s inaugural issue, “Community and Dissent.” You’ll want to be there. Sponsored by us! Here’s the info, as per its Facebook page:

Word Hoard is pleased to announce the printing of its inaugural issue, “Community and Dissent.” To celebrate the launch, Word Hoard editors along with the Graduate English Society cordially invite you to “Back and Forth and Forward” — an evening featuring guest speakers and dialogue between some of the current issue’s contributors. The launch party will take place on 12 October 2012, from 5:00-7:00 PM in Conron Hall, University College 224. A reception will follow the talks in UC 225.

The evening will include a guest talk by Dr. Bryce Traister (Chair, English), a dialogue between Mary Eileen Wennekers (English) and Matthew Halse (Theory), a discussion of the current call for papers for our next issue by Dr. Călin-Andrei Mihăilescu (Modern Languages and Literatures), and a word from the editors. Print copies of Word Hoard’s “Community and Dissent” will be available at the event for free or for a voluntary donation.

We look forward to the company of our friends, colleagues, mentors and readers in celebrating this important milestone. All are welcome.The editors at Word Hoard,

About uwoges

The Graduate English Society (GES) at Western University is a student organization that, through its various events and services, fosters a sense of social as well as academic community among the English graduate students currently in attendance at Western. We also facilitate communication between graduate students and faculty in an effort to promote intradepartmental camaraderie and to present graduate student concerns to the administration. All students in the graduate program in English at Western are members of the GES. Through the GES, students can voice and address matters common to the graduate student body. We hold meetings approximately once or twice a semester which are open to all members. We also elect members to various GES Service Positions where they represent student interests. In addition, the GES serves both professional and social purposes, sponsoring academic events and parties.
