Get ready for fun tonight! We are having our first club meeting of the semester at 7 tonight in room 213 of the Student Center. We will be introducing ourselves and having pizza! Come join us tonight, we'd love to see you there

Hey there Ink Slingers! Thanks so much for everyone who came to visit our table at Club Night tonight. The executive board is very excited for this semester of the club; we have some amazing things planned for prompts, events, and meetings. If you missed us tonight, we were handing out popcorn prompts (or the beginnings of stories for writers to expand on). A few were left without writers claiming them, and no story should be left unwritten; that's where you come in! Choose a prompt below, write about it, see where it takes you, and maybe bring it to our first meeting of the semester on Monday, August 28 at 7 (room number to be announced later). Happy writing!

Popcorn Prompts:
"A flower? That's all you're giving me?"

He was enchanting, sitting on a rock in the middle of the lagoon, hair perfectly tousled from his fingers combing through the locks meticulously. Nary a hair was out of place. In fact, he looked to be perfect in every way.
Perfection, however, is unattainable, no matter how hard he tried. Each time he viewed his reflection in the mirror-like waters of the lake, something was always off.
Perfection was just out of his grasp.

He spotted her down the hall. Her slender, thin frame sliced through the crowd of students in the hallway. She was looking at him through her slim rimmed reading glasses. He turned and slammed into the football coach, towering above him. He couldn't let her catch him.

"No one is you and that is your power." -- unknown

Think of this as a mid week encouragement, a writing prompt, or both. Happy writing!

Come by Kenan plaza today 11-4 for Blind Date with a Book! All books are only $2 and the proceeds are going to Betty Griffin house. Come buy a book, invite friends, and have a happy Valentine's Day!

Today we honor Martin Luther King Jr. by cancelling classes and club meetings (including Ink Slingers), but that doesn't mean we have to stop writing. "I Have a Dream" is one of the most famous speeches in American history. But what character do you have, or new character, that needs to make a speech? What is it about? Who is it going to be delivered to and when? How prestigious will it be, or will it be forgotten? Happy writing!

This Friday, Flagler will be visited by Tikiz Food Truck, which will give a portion of the profit to Ink Slingers from 11-2. Please drop by, pick up a delicious meal, and support your favorite club!

Pretty chill meeting this week. We're pretty much ready for Flagler Follies next week. Today, we did a writing prompt and our members liked my playlist for studying/writing so I'm gonna post it here for anyone who needs good studying music. Next Monday is Columbus day so we will NOT have a meeting. Remember to support us at the Follies on October 13th at 8pm!

We had an awesome meeting this week and with every meeting comes a new writing prompt: You see a large metal door and open it. What's inside? Write a short story or poem about it and bring it in next week to share!

Happy Monday, Ink Slingers! We have our second meeting tonight at 7:00pm in room 213 in the Student Center. We have our first prompt of the year which is to write about your favorite scent along with other creative activities for our members!

Hello fellow Ink Slingers!

Classes haven't even begun and there is already so much to do prepping for the upcoming semester. With a new semester comes new officers. My name is Sword and I am your new Vice President of the Ink Slingers club. I love this club and what it represents, welcoming writers from anywhere and everywhere to a safe place worth calling a second (or third) home. My co-officers and I are exceptionally excited to start the new year. We have new and exciting things to announce so stay updated to our posts on the page. If you have any questions or would like to know how to get more involved, don't hesitate to ask and I'll get back to you ASAP! Thanks for the support and see you on Club Night, August 25th
