Hey Write Club fam! Don't forget to come hang out with us tomorrow at 5 in the library for the first hangout of the semester! Can't wait to see everyone there!


Hey Write Club fam! With the semester getting underway and weekly routines are falling into place, we thought this would be a good time to fire the club back up for the semester and get back to our hangout sessions. We have to get the hangouts confirmed with student events first but as of right now we will be having our first hangout session on Wednesday February 1 at 5 in the technology study room in the library. We would love to see familiar and new faces there if you're interested. Feel free to bring a notebook and a pen along with you! Can't wait to see you all soon!

Welcome to NoiseMedium - NoiseMedium

The goal of NoiseMedium is to provide a platform for writers, artists, and essayists to publish whatever ideas are dearest to them, regardless of the subject's popular appeal.

They are launching their fourth contest this month and would be honored if students and faculty from Athens State University were to submit their work. The contest is free to enter, the top submission wins $500, and their favorite 50 submissions will be published on the website:

The contest ends on September 20th and winners will be notified by October 1st. Best of luck!!! WRITE ON!

Our goal is to publish the best creative writing from around the world. We may look like a lemonade stand for global literature but we're growing. Welcome.

Get some pep in your step and press on!
