Developing a Writer's Craft & Critical Eye

Monday   6:15-8:45 p.m.   6 weeks   Starts October 6, 2014

Ideally, students come away more knowledgeable and passionate about literary writing, with greater willingness to "take risks" in their own writing. After all, a writer's true voice comes from within. Writers will be encouraged to take those words to heart and to dig deeper for self-discovery and life's universal truths. Reading and writing outside of class are expected over the 6 weeks. In addition to class instruction, each student receives detailed, individualized (written) feedback on any personal writing (up to 5pp), submitted on a weekly basis, and is then given ample opportunity for follow-up questions/clarification, either in person (before or after class) or via email/phone (during the week). All materials included. For more info on instructor, go to http://lindacruise.wordpress.com/.

Bio Fuels 101

Monday   6:30-8:30 p.m.   1 week   Starts October 20, 2014
Tired of driving on dirty petroleum that contributes to global warming and climate change? Do you cringe every time you turn the key and hear the motor fire up? Do you wish you could get from point A to point B without burning fossil fuels? Well you can! In 1903 Rudolf Diesel introduced his diesel engine at the world's fair and it was running on peanut oil. His intention was to make it possible for farmers to grow their own fuel. Since then our planet has been addicted to petroleum causing many environmental and economic problems. But today people are realizing that Rudolf Diesel's ideas could help save the planet. Biofuels don't contribute significantly to global warming, and they help domestic farmers instead of multinational oil companies. Instructor Gary Beckwith has been running his cars (and school bus) on biofuels for 10 years and you can too! Learn how you can convert your car, what are the different types of biofuels, where to get them, and how you can drive without petroleum.

It is a tribute to the power of one person to change the world. Through this project, the Kansas students have helped crack open the silence about the Holocaust in Poland. Students of history have become agents of history. Author Jack Mayer hopes these two stories will inspire other students, and all of us, to do what we can to "repair the world". His presentation will be an opportunity for a general audience to learn about the Warsaw ghetto, Poland's traumatic W.W. II history, and how Poland has been changed by the "3 girls from Kansas".
