"1. At yesterdays Writers Week, all the presentations were exceptional and very meaningful. I really liked Emma Liu's (Great job Emma!) piece about gender disparity, because I can relate to it so well. Growing up, both my parents have taught me…"

"Out of all the writers this day three really stood out. Emma, Caitlin, and Katie all truly spoke from the heart. Emma a student who just wanted to be able to have a world where she would not be criticized for talking about politics with her…"
"Today at writer's week all of the student presenters seemed to have a common topic of stories about there lives and one writer that really stood out to me was Caitlin. Caitlin talked about Jim and her service dog and she was opening up to all…"
"1. I thought that all the writers today did a good job but three I especially liked were Emma, Katie, and Young. Emma spoke about an issue that was very prevalent to society in a way that was both easy to understand, yet still just as powerful and…"
"1) I agree with A.S. King's statement that "the writer's job is to be honest." Writers should not lie, and they should not feel the need to be dishonest to themselves in order to make money or gain popularity. Many times, authors…"
"All seven girls who presented today, were phenomenal and sent out a strong, confident message and I am inspired by their courage to be able to do what they did! I really enjoyed Morgan, Katie, and Rosa’s pieces. Morgan’s was really…"
"I definitely agree with the statement "character is everything". Because if you don't have at least one interesting and dynamic character, the reader stops reading because with out characters, there wouldn't be a story or plot.…"

"Young Sun Lee

"1) I must agree with A.S. King that "character is everything." A story that revolves around a well created character is the best story. If people are able to relate to that character, how they both share something in common, it makes the…"
I was so impressed by how in sync these performers were. When Miss Berdick told me they put together this entire show in 6 weeks, I was stunned. Not many people realize how much work goes into a theatrical performance and I applaud the entire cast!
Today I had the opportunity to watch the Fermilab Physics Slam second period. Going into Writer's Week today, I was expecting a very fun, quick explanations of physics, maybe from some young science guys. I was taken aback by the two very established and professional looking Physicians that I heard from today. It was clear that they were physicians, not performance speakers, because of their often monotonous and scientific monologues. I enjoy the male physician's monologue a little better then the womens, beause he used some props that helped explain his point to me. Though it was kind of the Fermilab physicians to take their time to come and speak to us today, I feel as thought their speeches went over our heads a bit.
