On the annual Kick Back in the Stacks night the University Writing Center had to find a temporary space to welcome new UofL students (though we ARE still open on the Third Floor of Ekstrom Library as our new First Floor space is completed!). But we still found a way to have a great time with the hundreds of new people we met. Along with the games and the art, we had a blog open for new students to contribute to and here is what some of them had to say to some of our questions.
Meanwhile, come see us on the Third Floor to get feedback and help with your writing!
What are you most excited about for your first year at UofL?

What is your favorite thing about writing?
It calms me down
I like writing to get my thoughts out on paper.
It is challenging but rewarding.
Explaining and expressing your feelings and cool stuff like that
I like writing because it allows me to express my feelings without being judged
I love to write my thoughts and perspectives on the world around me and then listen to the ideas that others may have.
It allows me to have my thoughts brought together in one place.
It allows me to gather my own ideas and argue viewpoints with their own thoughts
What is your favorite genre (poetry, short story, analysis etc.) to write? Why?
Mythical, romance, even dark things if I’m in the right mood.
I love historical fiction!!!!!!
Analysis: It’s what I’m most comfortable with and brings in my thoughts on a subject most thoroughly
Fiction, because I really like how stories are not always true and even realities.
