You and your fellow authors will meet at ZSR at 4 pm in the ZSR Auditorium with everything you need for a binge writing session. Be prepared to stay until midnight when we celebrate your work. Professor Ryan Shirey, Director of the WFU Writing Center will open the event with insider tips to make the most of your writing experience.
