If you think the English Department's Writing Program 201 course is a dry business, focused on sentence structure, comma use, and dangling participles, a poster fair of students' work will push that opinion out of your mind fast.

The 201 Poster Fair will feature the remarkable range of research topics students in the course have addressed. Visitors to the fair can also meet some of the students and hear from them about how the 201 course has transformed not only their writing but also how they view the research process.

The poster fair will be available for viewing on Monday April 11th and Tuesday April 12th, from 10:00 am to 6:30 pm, in the lower level of the Kilmer Library on the Livingston campus.

On Monday April 11th, at 2:30 pm, School of Arts and Sciences Vice Dean of Undergraduate Education Mike Beals and Livingston Campus Dean of Students Cheryl Clarke will view the exhibition. Vice Dean Beals will offer greetings to the poster fair participants.

On Tuesday April 12th, at 1:00 pm, Dean of the School of Arts and Sciences Honors Program and Dean of the College Ave. Campus Matt Matsuda and Livingston Campus Dean Lea P. Stewart, will view the exhibition and offer greetings to the poster fair participants. Dean Matsuda will present prizes for the most creative and informative posters.

Light snacks will be served at the exhibition and prizes will be awarded for the five best posters.
People attending the poster fair receptions on Monday and/or Tuesday can participate in a raffle, with the two winners awarded dinner with Dean Matsuda, Professor Tisha Bender, and Kilmer Library Reference and Education Librarian/Instruction Coordinator Jeris Cassel at the Rutgers Club.

For more information on the poster fair and the reception please contact Dr. Tisha Bender, assistant director of the Writing Program and coordinator of the 201 courses, at 848/445-5658 or
