Here is the announcement for Eley’s lecture in the Department of English Speakers Series, which I put alot into making it happen. If you can, make it. This should be great.  

Announcement posted by Lee Anne Richardson to the English Department listserv 9/25.

A great opportunity for you and your students to hear a nationally-recognized podcaster:
The Department of English Speakers Series is sponsoring a lecture this coming Tuesday, October 2, at 2:00. Stephen Eley will speak on the topic of “Podcasting in Education and Publishing.”

Stephen Eley is the publisher of the short-story science fiction podcast “Escape Pod,” which has had short stories by Hugo winners, and he has earned a good reputation locally and nationally for podcasting. NPR’s program “Day to Day” featured Eley in a report on fiction podcasters, which you can access at

The lecture will be held in the GSU Welcome Center, located in room 134 in Alumni Hall.

Although you may never have entered Alumni Hall, you’ve certainly seen it. It is at the corner of Gilmer and Courtland Streets—across from Hurt Park; next door to M Deck parking; kitty-corner from Sparks Hall. The -easiest- way to get to Alumni Hall from GCB: go out the door of GCB onto Peachtree Center, walk down to Gilmer (the first street) and make a right; when you get to Courtland (the first street), Alumni Hall will be on the far side of the street on your left. Once you go in, the Welcome Center is easy to find. It is, after all, a Welcome Center. The -most direct- route is to walk through the plaza to Courtland street, and then make a left to walk down just past Gilmer. Alumni Hall will be on the right.

Something to say?
