This blog, for the "Bunnicula Project," is a part of the fall 2011 King's College course, English 327: Professional Writing for the Arts. Students in the course, as well as its professor Noreen O'Connor and Arts Youniverse director Kathleen Godwin, will take turns blogging here as we prepare for the children's play Bunnicula at Arts YOUniverse. The play will be performed on October 22 and 23, 2011.
The idea for this course began when O'Connor and Godwin met at a "Third Friday"Arts event at the Arts Seen Gallery in Wilkes-Barre's Public Square in 2010. They soon began planning ways that King's English-Professional Writing students could have meaningful hands-on experiences with the writing work that professionals in the field of arts management, arts education, and arts fundraising do. Students in the course will be writing the play's program, marketing and communications materials such as press releases, fundraising materials, and community outreach materials. This blog will bring many voices together to document the process this fall.
