Derrick's Semester in France- Two Weeks

Derrick Cline - August 26, 2016

I’ve discovered which cafes are true cafes and which ones are the tourist traps. I find myself passing fanny-pack wearing, giant-map-toting, photograph-taking families thinking “silly tourists”, before realizing that I have only been here two weeks and the locals probably say the same thing about me!

HippoCamp 2016

Marshall Warfield - August 11, 2016

I hope to run into other alumni and current students from the publishing and creative writing programs throughout the weekend. But it’s not all shaking hands and talking about Rosemont College. I will be presenting a talk on strategies that creative nonfiction writers can steal from poets in order to craft better essays.

Derrick's Semester in France

Derrick Cline - August 10, 2016

A little over a year ago, I began my process and after a year of hard work, here I am. I am within forty-eight hours of getting on my first plane (only slightly terrified), and leaving literally everything I’ve ever known for five months. And I couldn’t be more excited! Au Revoir!

Bonjour & many cheers from across the pond, Ravens!

Bonjour & many cheers from across the pond, Ravens!

If you haven't had the pleasure of traveling to Europe, Ravens, I highly recommend you begin to research doing so. There is a wonderful feeling unlike any other, when you stroll the cobblestone streets of a historic city and allow yourself to absorb the culture. The next time you visit a new city, allow yourself some quiet time to explore with your own thoughts. Walk around, scope out your surroundings, talk to the locals, and allow yourself to take it all in.
