Exit West by Mohsin Hamid


In a country teetering on the brink of civil war, two young people meet—sensual, fiercely independent Nadia and gentle, restrained Saeed. They embark on a furtive love affair, and are soon cloistered in a premature intimacy by the unrest roiling their city. When it explodes, turning familiar streets into a patchwork of checkpoints and bomb blasts, they begin to hear whispers about doors—doors that can whisk people far away, if perilously and for a price. As the violence escalates, Nadia and Saeed decide that they no longer have a choice. Leaving their homeland and their old lives behind, they find a door and step through. . . .

Exit West follows these remarkable characters as they emerge into an alien and uncertain future, struggling to hold on to each other, to their past, to the very sense of who they are. Profoundly intimate and powerfully inventive, it tells an unforgettable story of love, loyalty, and courage that is both completely of our time and for all time.

Writing Workshop for Teens

The first class will be on the writing format, microfiction.  Shorter than short stories but still full of plot and character development, teens will learn how to capture this popular format.  Microfiction tends to be less than 500 words, and will force writers to think more critically about what they write.  Check out some examples here! Professor Leah Nielsen will assist teens in keeping stories short, sweet, and compelling.    

The Writing Workshop for Teens will be a series of classes taught by Westfield State University's assistant professor, Leah Nielsen.  Leah is an accomplished writer of two published books of poetry.  While poetry is her bread and butter, Leah loves all formats and genres of writing.  At Westfield State University, Leah teaches classes like writing poetry, creative writing, and career preperation for writers, a class that she designed.  Leah is excited to pass on her knowledge of writing to next generation of writers and inspire teens to keep writing!

For students going into grades 6-12

Please register, space is limited!

Writing Workshop for Teens

The final class will cover the format and style of performance poetry.  This poetry is written specifically to be performed, or spoken out loud.  Check out this video of three girls performing poetry on the Queen Latifah Show.  Performance poetry, like all poetry, can be controversial and tackle large societal issues.  Professor Leah Nielsen will assist students in creating their own performance.  Teens will have a chance to perform their poetry on stage in the Lang Auditorium. 

The Writing Workshop for Teens will be a series of classes taught by Westfield State University's assistant professor, Leah Nielsen.  Leah is an accomplished writer of two published books of poetry.  While poetry is her bread and butter, Leah loves all formats and genres of writing.  At Westfield State University, Leah teaches classes like writing poetry, creative writing, and career preperation for writers, a class that she designed.  Leah is excited to pass on her knowledge of writing to next generation of writers and inspire teens to keep writing!
