Dear City Tech community,
April. A month of spring breezes, romance, surging seasonal allergies, taxes, and frenetically catching up on That Course you’ve been avoiding for weeks. What better time than now to tune into the Library’s City Tech Stories podcast and listen to an illuminating discussion about the college’s journal of outstanding student writing!?
Library professors Nora Almeida and Junior Tidal sat down with Computer Science professor Atilio Barreda, student writer Emily Hu, and yours truly (Professor Kwong) to talk about writing as a collaborative process, the inspiration for Emily’s upcoming essay on anti-Asian hate, the difference between writing in the classroom and writing for a general audience, and why Art Deco might be making a comeback. Enjoy listening!
When y0u’re done listening, get hyped for this Friday, 4.8 at 11 am, a virtual short film screening and discussion with student filmmaker Alvaro Panozo. His film “Airpods” will be the first short film to ever be featured in City Tech Writer! Audio from our discussion will be incorporated into an exciting interactive feature of the upcoming issue.
