First Blog Post for the 2015-2016 School Year!


Greetings fellow English and all things creative lovers and welcome to the English Society Blog! I have plans to make more use of the blog this year and I hope you will aid me in this mission! Here you will find summaries of past meetings, reminders and important information for future meetings, and maybe even prompts for you to send responses to. And of course, don’t be afraid to submit anything that you’ve written and want to share, even if it doesn’t relate to a prompt. This is a great platform to do so. Send your submissions to the English Society official e-mail: clubenglishsociety@up.edu.

To begin, here’s a recap of the last meeting we had (which was the first for the school year!). The meeting started off with everyone introducing themselves and sharing what their favorite book is and why they like it. This constituted our main discussion for the evening. Side note, if you wish to know more about the officers for this year, check out the article either before or after this one. Before we delved into that subject, however, Kenneth gave an overview of what exactly the English Society is. He emphasized the point that while we are called the English Society, we are fans of anything that is creative, which can extend beyond books. We then voted on what genres we wished to discuss this semester. The winner of the night was comic books/graphic novels. So, this will be the focus of our next meeting. I hope to see you all there and some new faces as well! All are welcome. If you wish to know more about the history of comic books and the roles of those who create them, make sure to check out the article that Kenneth has written.

That’s all for now.

Your English Society Blog Editor,

Amanda
