2014- UF was awarded a grant to create a resident chapter (making it one of the 15 approved chapters in the country)! UF’s attendance at the 2014 biennial in Atlanta included three faculty, a student and resident and resident chapter advisor- and a graduate who presented on her joint project to create a literary anthology “Literary Liniment” whose publication was funded by the Arnold P. Gold Foundation. Workshops on narrative also were conducted by Chapman faculty.
Also, with a UF faculty member on the biennial planning committee, the Biennial initiated an Open Mike event. Another faculty member read her poem at the event.
