Encountering STories Showcase: autumn 2019

One Book, One DU fosters community building through both the generating and the sharing of stories. Once we've had the chance to reflect upon our experiences through responding to the One Prompt, we create space for that "greater fluency, better understanding" by actively listening to others' narratives.

The first opportunity for our incoming students to share their One Prompt responses is Encountering Stories. Held annually in late October, this showcase and gallery celebrates the vibrant voices and diverse life experiences of our new students. For your work to be considered in Encountering Stories, please e-mail it to by October 1st, 2019. For additional information, visit our website:

The top 25 submissions are selected for display in the fall quarter, and five of these authors will be invited to perform an excerpt of their prompt response at the event.
