A Visitor from Spain

Thanks to the Hispanic Latino Cultural Series, this past Monday and Tuesday SRU had a visiting writer. On the 26th, Silvia Nanclares from Spain gave a public lecture which I was not able to attend–“I write therefore I am.” She was also a guest speaker in several Spanish classes, none of which I was enrolled. But, I was invited to the writer’s workshop on the 27th and was able to attend. It was an excellent workshop. In an hour and a half, Silvia shared with us techniques to jog our memories and help us become more creative. The exercises were so simple, but immediately effective. As we left the classroom, I heard more than one student saying that it was fun and really good. For me, any time I can sharpen my writing skills, I’m a happy camper.

There is so much constantly going on at SRU, if I lived closer, I’d be going to something all the time. Plays, sports, dances (salsa this Thursday as part of the continuing Hispanic Latino Cultural Series), visiting speakers on a wide variety of topics, monks, movie night, and on and on. These events are free or very reasonably priced for students. We’ve got it good!
