PRESS RELEASE

New York, New York – April 28, 2011– CCNY students will have a fun and engaging opportunity to celebrate writing to get some tips on improving their writing at the CCNY Writers Block Party, Tuesday, May 10, 2011 from 12 p.m.-2 p.m. at the Hoffman lounge in the North Academic Center (NAC). Participants get free food, drinks, fun giveaways and are eligible to win a free Kindle.

The event encourages students to celebrate the writer within them, no matter what their major, even if writing is not their favorite subject. Students who bring a grade “A” paper will receive a special prize. And, all students will be shown how they can improve their writing by taking the Writers Block Map Challenge, a fun and easy interactive game.

Visitors will receive a map game and will visit several highlights along The Writers Block Party:
• Brainstorm Avenue
• Draft Drive
• Edit Street
• Revision Way
• Writers Lane

The event is sponsored by The Collar Group, one of the agency teams in the MCA AD/PR Workshop, in collaboration with The CCNY Writing Center to promote better writing among CCNY students. The team developed this event in response to its survey findings that most CCNY students don’t consider themselves to be writers. The CCNY Writers Block event is an opportunity for all CCNY students to be celebrated as writers, and to leave with the confidence, skills and determination to become better writers. The event will also reinforce the role of the CCNY Writing Center as a resource to CCNY students.

About The Collar Group: The Collar Group is composed of 11 team members from the CCNY MCA AD/PR Workshop class. The campaign will encourage and motivate CCNY students to identify themselves as writers and to create awareness about the writing process.

About The CCNY Writing CenterThe City College of New York Writing Center is funded by the Samuel Rudin Foundation. The Writing Center offers CCNY students tutoring services in grammar and writing. It also serves as a resource center for students to actively use for their academic pursuits.
