Hello! Whispers have been circulating around Robert Bell about this year. Lots of them, mysterious in origin as The Shadow or how people learned they could turn horse hooves into a sticky milk for applying their materials gained from the glitter mines of Eastern Europe/Western Asia to their formerly ho hum holiday greeting cards. Since whispers are usually good things to listen to, we will be posting all the info on happenings in the department here, on our Facebook, and on our Twitter. This includes department events and student-run English events (such as poetry readings at various times during the year that always bring a level of enjoyment and excitement contrary to most people’s notions of things of this sort), as well as posts about all things English. This year we will also feature guest posts by faculty and students alike, though this will be by request only.
Today, enjoy this, our sparkling and baby-legged first Friday of the academic year. Cherish the light workload, it won’t take long to feel like a grass-fat pony keeps swan-diving right into your ankles.

Coming soon…Interview with Tyler Gobble, president of BSU’s Writers Community, on the group’s past, present, and future (followed by hyper, electronic echoes, steady zaps, and 21-laser-gun salute–keep your children indoors and out of airplanes).
