Summer Writing: The Six-Word Memoir by You
Writing Program tutors and faculty brought writing to Welcome to Wheaton Day via Visiting Assistant Professor Ruth Foley's Poems on Demand and the Six Word Memoir.
Professor Connie Campana, Wheaton Emerson Writing Fellow Angie Sarhan and a host of writing tutors invited students and parents to compose their six-word Wheaton memoir. Inspired by an apocryphal story about Ernest Hemingway, who, when challenged to compose a story using only six words, wrote, "For sale: Baby shoes, never worn," our visitors wrote their own. (See side column.)
