Welcome to THE AFTERWORD, a (slightly unofficial) place for Bucknell University Creative Writing alumni to connect. Conceived in late 2009 and officially launched on May 12th, 2010, THE AFTERWORD aims to provide resources, camaraderie, and support for those of us still writing in the scary post-grad world, and perhaps inspire those who have since stopped to fall in love with writing all over again.
The creation of THE AFTERWORD went a little something like this:
Professor Chris Camuto: FRIEDLANDER.
Chrissy: Oh, hey, Professor.
Professor Camuto: You know what we need?
Chrissy: (hesitant) What?
Professor Camuto: A place for alumni writers to get together and commiserate about being writers!
Chrissy: Actually, that sounds like a pretty cool idea. Do you want me to send you a mock-up of a potential website or something?
Professor Camuto: Nah. I’m kind of busy.
Chrissy: With your land and all?
Professor Camuto: Sure, let’s say that.
Chrissy: Okay, I’ll give it a shot.
Professor Camuto: See, this is why I am a professor: all one needs to do is plant the seed.
Obviously, I fell right into that one. Yeah.
