The Dinner Club

September 20, 2017

Spend your first few weeks wandering around a dorm, and eventually a dinner party will break out.

Says W&P student Lauren Lang (posting to the program’s Facebook page): “having a meal at a table is much better with friends when being away from family.” Five W&P students, gathering in the kitchen to concoct various meals (rice, squash, steamed vegetables and shrimp, pasta, a single egg), before sitting down to take stock of what brought them together: it’s a thing of beauty. We writers gotta stick together, lest we go insane.

First, a supper club: then, here come the séances, the exquisite corpses, the murder mystery dinner theaters. Someone will inevitably bring a Ouija board. This campus is haunted, don’t you know? We do, and we’re looking forward to extending the invitation.
