Join Professor Jeffrey Cohen from the GW English Department and his Chaucer class for hands-on history at Write Like a Scribe Day. View selected manuscripts from our Special Collections and then use the latest technology of 1478 - a quill, ink, and vellum - to create your own. Get your hands dirty and learn something about history you can't necessarily find in a book - how the media you use in part determines the possibilities for the writing and story-telling you can undertake. Medieval(ish) refreshments will be served.
