Meet and hang out with your English Department peers and get to know others across the Fort Collins English community. Our rotating schedule of activities will give you a chance to share your ideas and your work with a group that can relate.

These weekly gatherings create community, and they provide our friends with a space for reaching out to one another in celebration of scholarship and creativity. We also provide snacks!

No need to RSVP, just show up. Inklings is free and open to anyone interested. Scroll down for our events calendar, and we'll see you Thursdays.

Upcoming Schedule

9/21 - Creative Writing Night: Do you want to practice your craft? Join us for an evening filled with writing prompts to help you hone your creative writing skills!

9/28 - Poetry Night: Share some of your favorite poetry with us! Can either be your own or someone else's.

10/5 - Jackbox Game Night!

10/12 - Horror Stories: Monsters, spooks, and mystical creatures! Try your hand at writing short tales of creepy creatures as they are assigned to you. It is a great way to hone your horror writing skills.

10/19 - Book Exchange: Bring a great book that you love but are willing to swap. The only problem is that you don’t know what book you will get in return. Books will be wrapped with key words on the wrapping, but with the title and author obscured.

10/26 - Halloween Scary Stories: Even if you haven’t personally experienced something supernatural, perhaps you are good at inventing scary stories. Win prizes for the best original spooky story that you share with the club.

11/02 - Guest Speaker: Dr. Jacobi on English Majors in the World.

Love the idea of writing on the beach?  Wonder about learning to teach community writing workshops? What about a travel writing class on a ship?  Join the English department's Tobi Jacobi to learn (and do some fun writing about) opportunities for taking your English major skills off-campus through volunteer opportunities, internships and education abroad.

11/09 - Just Dance Night: Dust off your dancing shoes and join us for a night of getting down!

11/16 - Fall break! Unfortunately we will not have a meeting over Fall Break, but we will see you when we get back!
