Journalist and author Lynn Waddell was guest speaker at this year's Creative Writing Showcase.The Department of Verbal and Visual Arts recently hosted its Creative Writing Certificate Showcase at the St. Petersburg landmark, The Chattaway. Approximately 70 students and faculty attended the event, which is designed to celebrate graduating students who have earned the certificate.

“The Creative Writing Certificate Showcase provides an opportunity for students in our creative writing courses to share their work, find community and hear the insights from a more established writer,” said Dr. Thomas Hallock, chair of the department. “Students read their work; they lingered. The evening was magical.”
