EKU Archives After Dark Application
One Archives Item -- One Creative Product -- One Great Night

On Friday, January 26th, 2018, a group of 15-20 student authors/creators will convene in the John Grant Crabbe Library to be inspired by items in Special Collections & Archives. Students will then gather in the Noel Studio, where they will spend the night writing, creating, and polishing their works. The resulting creative works will be collected and published digitally and in print, and the authors/creators recognized during Scholars Week 2018.

Date and Time Commitment:
Friday, January 26th, 2018, 7pm-7am in the John Grant Crabbe Library (yes, that's right, spend the night in the Crabbe Library) with a kick-off event from 7:15-8pm in Special Collections & Archives.

Selection Process:
Current EKU students enrolled for Spring 2018 are invited to apply by completing and submitting this form between October 9, 2017-November 9, 2017. The application can be revisited and edited until the deadline.

Applications will be reviewed by the Archives After Dark Committee, who will extend an invitation to a select few students by November 27, 2017.
