|Center for Community Engagement presents second annual Alvin E. Austin writing workshop|
The UND Center for Community Engagement will host the Alvin E. Austin Memorial writing workshop, “Your Legacy in Print: Writing Personal Experiences” Friday, Oct. 2, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., as a part of its fifth anniversary and Homecoming festivities.
Archie Hill is back to lead the workshop. Hill, a former UND journalism faculty member and a friend and colleague of Al Austin, promises user-friendly writing techniques that add vitality to memorable personal experiences.
Alvin E. Austin, who was a UND professor from 1946 to 1980 and chaired the Journalism Department for over 20 years, is remembered by colleagues and students as an outstanding teacher, mentor, and community member. Austin died in 1999. Austin’s family created the Alvin E. Austin Memorial Fund at the Center for Community Engagement to continue his legacy.
The workshop is open to the community and is free for UND students. The cost of the workshop for non-students is $20.
Those interested in participating in the seminar should contact the Center for Community Engagement at 777-0675 or email@example.com. Proceeds benefit the Al Austin Fund at the Center.
