Sponsored by Sigma Tau Delta, the Arts and Writing House and International House hosted a “Fright Write” at Zwingli, one of the campus’ Main Street houses, on October 27th. All creative ghouls arrived and gathered for a night of terror and fun. Students acted according to the Japanese tradition of sharing scary stories. There were one hundred tales to tell, some of which were original works by fellow students and others inspired by horror legends like Edgar Allen Poe. Every person held a candle and blew it out when they finished speaking. After all the candles were extinguished, the room was pitch black.
Celebrating the Halloween season is an exciting time for English majors to showcase what they have produced and to acknowledge eerie, literary idols from the past. The entertainment, and ominous atmosphere, was endless at Zwingli’s Fright Write.
