AMC Creative Writing Club: NaNoWriMo – Final Meeting

thumb_COLOURBOX4474261The whole November AMC Creative Club members have been brainstorming for ideas and working on their short stories. Let’s meet one last time this month on Saturday, November 29 at 4 p.m. to discuss a short story “Address” written by one of the club members. You can read the story here or take a printed copy at the Circulation desk in the American Center. We will dedicate an hour to discussing the short story, and after that we will celebrate the end of National Novel Writing Month by having a tea party and talking about writing. Join us to have fun!

AMC Debates Club

smartphone addictionHello Everyone! You might be checking this post on your smartphone. Now, with a smartphone all the information is at your fingertips, whatever information it could be. Some people use it as their daily planner. Others would have their nose stuck in it every spare minute checking new “likes” on social websites. In either case, forgetting it at home for a day is a disaster! Or is not it? Can you still dispense with it? What is a smartphone – an addiction in disguise or the biggest help you’ve ever had? Come and join our discussion on Saturday, November 29 at 1 p.m. in AMC Debates Club.
