Are you aspiring to be a writer? Are you already a writer and want to learn how to publish your work? Alaska Writers Guild is holding a meeting today from 7 – 8:30 p.m. at the Bear Gallery at Pioneer Park on Airport Way. They ask that attendees bring three questions that are related to writing and ideas for speakers and program topics. If you cannot attend the meeting you can contact them at or post it on their Facebook page. – Cheyenne Corty / Layout Editor

You’ve almost made it to break! And if you’re anything like me you’re counting down until it’s time for mashed potatoes. However, you might also be worrying about that moment when you realize it’s you who’s stuffed instead of your Thanksgiving Turkey. Want to get one last workout in before the big day so you don’t throw off your diet too much? DRAW is hosting a HardCORE workout session 6:30-7 p.m. in the SRC today. So make good on that gym membership we all pay for, if you want to, and stop in for some intense core strengthening. – Kyrie Long / Editor-in-Chief

Today is Thanksgiving! Enjoy your favorite food, time with friends and family, and get some rest before coming back to finish out the semester with style and glamour! – Ben Ellis / Web Editor

If you want to test your speed in cross country skiing, join other racers at the Birch Hill Recreation Area for the Turkey Day relay. The relay is open to all ages willing and able to race. If you want to gain a sense of pride and accomplishment from blowing past a couple kids on the track then this is the place for you. – Alex Frania / / Photo Editor

Skating is fun! Well, at least from what I remember when I took lessons in elementary school. Tonight from 6 – 8 p.m. The Student Activities Office and DRAW is hosting a free skate at the Patty Center! Admission and rentals are free. Oh, and they titled the event “Gobble Wobble” which is delightfully ridiculous. – Cheyenne Corty / Layout Editor

Hey, good news and bad news. Good news, finals are coming up. Bad news, finals are coming up. To relieve yourself of some of the stresses that will result from the upcoming weeks, order a finals care package from the United Campus Ministry. Seriously, you’ve earned it. Even if you didn’t, treat yo’ self fool. For more information, go to the ministry’s website. – Alex Frania / / Photo Editor

You made it from break back to school and hopefully you did it with enough food in your stomach to buckle down before finals, since they start in two weeks. Now might be the time to ask about extra credit or finish that assignment you’ve been putting off. Seriously though, we’re entering crunch time on campus and I won’t blame you for grabbing a coffee at the library and sitting down for an extra study session. – Kyrie Long / Editor-in-Chief
