Students, faculty and staff were treated to another engaging discussion Nov. 3, when Roy Steinberg spoke about the art and business of dramatic writing. Mr. Steinberg, a Yale graduate and former writer for several long-running soap operas, is the Producing Artistic Director of Cape May Stage. He wove the origins and history of classical theatre into a frank discussion of the artistic constraints that writers for soap operas, primetime shows and new media face on a daily basis. After Q & A, Mr. Steinberg visited Rich Russell’s creative writing class and offered feedback to the eager writers. We thank SGA and CMCC Student Services for providing refreshments. It was an uplifting afternoon for all who attended!
The Nov. 10 Veterans Day ceremony is set to be simulcast to the CMCC dining room. Please join us Tuesday, Nov. 10, at 12:30 p.m. Also, please thank a veteran by adding his or her name to a star on the Veterans Day Board, just inside the front door on the way to the first floor classrooms.
Do you have some coats, hats or gloves in your closet that you don’t really wear anymore, or that your children have outgrown? Please consider donating them to the CMCC coat drive for Syrian refugees, coordinated by Associate Professor of English Regina Van Epps. Needed items include: warm clothing for adults and children, diapers and formula, wipes, detergent, toothbrushes and toothpaste, soap and personal hygiene supplies. Drop your items in the donation box at the base of the stairway on CMCC’s first floor. The drive runs through the end of the semester, Dec. 18.
