The Celebration of Writing

Celebration of Writing, May 2016

The Department of Writing Studies, Rhetoric and Composition hosts The Celebration of Writing at the end of each semester. The Celebration is an exciting venue for students to showcase their work for a public audience. Students currently enrolled in any WTNG course, regardless of level, are eligible to participate. All genres (posters, papers, presentations, multi-modal projects, etc.) are welcome. While the event runs from 9-1, students and faculty can join in for as much or as little of the day as they would like.
