English Department 32nd Annual High School Workshop

On Monday, November 6, the Ashland University English Department will hold its 32nd annual High School Workshop. We typically host 150 area high school students and their teachers.

The day will begin with a gathering in the Alumni room of the upper convo where coffee, juice, and pastries will be provided. Our visitors will then attend three workshop on rotation throughout the morning.

The workshops this year will include a discussion of William Stafford's poem "Traveling Through the Dark,"Ursula K. Le Guin's short story, "The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas," The Magic and Mystery, Purpose and Power of the Opening Sentence in Fiction, Exploring the Scope of the Very Short Story, Satire: Techniques and Traditions, and audience participation poems.

After the workshops, the visiting students and teachers will attend an Admissions presentation and then have their choice of attending AU student readings, campus tours, or lunch in lower convo. The readings and tours groups will have lunch at 1 pm.

We are proud of this event’s longevity, its continuing ability to bring students and teachers to campus as well as providing members of the department the opportunity to engage in serious discussions with many of the brightest high school students in the area.
