Furrow: An Undergraduate Literary & Art Review

Wednesday, February 01, 2012


Furrow is embarking on it's very first annual Write-A-Thon on Thursday, February 9th from 12 - 4pm.

Now you may be wondering, what the f**k is a "Write-A-Thon?" Well, like the name would suggest, it is akin to a marathon, but instead of mara-ing, you're writing. We have 45 15-minute slots available to sign up in, though of course you're allowed to participate for longer if you so desire.

There are two ways to play, as it were. You can get friends and family to sponsor you depending on how many words you write in those 15-X minutes, or you can just write and accept challenges from the general public. Jane and John Q. Passersbye can stop by our booth, attracted by our baked goods, and purchase a challenge from one of our volunteer writers, which can be anything from "write a poem about ponies" to "write me a fanfic about two of my favorite characters shacking up." Obviously, the latter would be more expensive, and can be emailed or otherwise sent to the purchaser at the writer's convenience.

Those are the guidelines, and otherwise will be played by ear. Did I mention there will be cookies for sale? Lots and lots of cookies.

So shoot us an email at furrowmag@gmail.com if you want to participate or are curious in anyway. Remember: It's for a good cause.

Furrow Presents, the UWM Writer's Workshop!

We've partnered with the Milwaukee Writer's Workshop, an local group dedicated to helping writers, not only with the craft of writing itself, but by critiquing already written works, to bring you the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee chapter of MWW.

We are currently holding workshops on the third floor of the union every other Friday. If you are interested in attending or have any questions, please email us at furrowmag@gmail.com, or Boone, the director of MWW at boone@milwaukeewritersworkshop.com.

Open Mic Night

Well, we're well on our way to a finished magazine at this point. The layout is more or less fixed, and all that remains is putting the bleeding thing together and shipping it off to the printers. Nothing can go wrong, right?

Here's hoping.

Anyway, to celebrate the publication of Furrow's 11th edition, we'll be hosting an open mic night at the UWM Union, room 280 from 6-9pm. The event is free and open to the public, and there may or may not be baked goods. So bring your poetry, your prose, and as many friends as you can con into coming to hear you read and come pick up your very own copy of the 2010/2011 edition of Furrow!

Magazine Magazine Magazine!

Furrow is officially published for one and all. It is a beautiful thing, if I do say so myself, so everyone should go pick one up outside the Furrow Office on the third floor of the union, office number 388.

As it is thank you all for everything, no matter how small, and we'll see you next year.
