[138] ‘MTSU On the Record’ goes ‘Off Center’ for look at new magazine

MURFREESBORO — MTSU’s latest creative writing magazine is the subject of the next “MTSU On the Record” radio program.

Host Gina Logue’s interview with Bené Cox, director of the Margaret H. Ordoubadian University Writing Center and an English professor, will air at the program’s new times, 8 to 8:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 17, and from 6 to 6:30 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 23, on WMOT-FM/Roots Radio 89.5 and

“Off Center,” edited by graduate student consultants Hillary Yeager and Amy Harris-Aber, made its debut in the fall 2016 semester. It includes poetry, short essays, art, fiction and more from students who have benefitted from the writing center’s guidance.

“There’s no forced motive for making students go to the writing center,” said Cox. “They come in because they want to learn, and then we hope that they would be interested in some of our other programs that we offer, of course, free of charge, and at various times during the semester.”

The writing center’s primary goal is “to foster independent writers who are capable of recognizing and capitalizing on their strengths as well as identifying and addressing concerns,” according to its webpage.
