Calling All Writers…

IDS student Halley Miglietta is working on a multimedia project and is welcoming written contributions from anyone and everyone.  Here’s the information:

I am doing a project for a class in the New Media Studies Department titled Text and Image, and would like you, yes you, to be involved.

I am creating a digital book that will include writings by *eh hem* you, and photos by, well, me.

Here’s your prompt: “It was only a moment, but it changed everything…”

I’m looking for engaging and creative write-ups based on that theme. I would prefer them to be of the non-fiction memoir category, but if you have a hankering for fiction, that’s welcome too.

Your story can be funny, moving, inspiring, tragic, quirky, fascinating, mind-blowing… or just plain weird.  There is also great freedom in its length – It can be as short as two sentences or as long as one page. Keep in mind that if you’re going for something smaller, try and make sure that you are delivering something huge.

I will take your story, and pair it with a photograph taken by myself. This will be an active pursuit to capture an interesting and relevant visual representation of your specific words.

The project will be completed in approximately 4 weeks. I would like to have all entries in by the next 2.

You will receive a digital copy of the final product.

Please include your name, age, and location. You can also choose to remain anonymous.

I look forward to reading your contributions, and the interesting adventures that will come of them.

You can send your words to my email:

On your marks….get set….WRITE!

  1. Sound’s interesting, Halley.

    Life is a series of such moments. Going back to DePaul as an adult learner was once such pointilliar passage…like the one’s formed by Derrida’s pen.

    Resting on paper the ink flowed from it, diffusely spreading from the tip until the widening blot passed between the individual sheets of thought , becoming a vermhole between all our textualities.

    I learned that via DePaul – IDS/MALS

    2008 Graduate

    I plan to come into Lincoln Park, tomorrow (Oct 23) for the IDS/MALS social if you’d like to talk in person.
