Category Archives: The Thing Itself: An MFD WC Partner

The MFD Writing Center and The Thing Itself, OLLU’s own creative literary journal, have teamed up!

This space will feature announcements and promos for The Thing Itself, as well as news about upcoming events hosted by the MFD Writing Center in ACE.

Our hope for this partnership is that it will bridge creative and academic writing, two different styles that are more intertwined in how an individual thinks about them.
