AND RESEARCH CONFERENCE
The University Writing Program will once again host the University Writing and Research Conference, which will be held October 9-10 on the Mount Vernon campus. At this event, University Writing (UW1020) students from Spring 2014 who have been nominated by a faculty member will share their research and writing experiences with an audience comprised of fellow students, faculty, librarians, and friends.
Writing is a social act: Audiences shape writing and, in turn, writing shapes the perceptions and viewpoints of audiences. The mid-semester conference is an opportunity for current UW20 students to see the work that their peers produced in classes last fall at the moment when the current students begin working on their own research projects. The conference is also a place for students from the fall to receive useful, sometimes eye-opening feedback on their own work.
SPONSORSHIP: The Fall 2014 University Writing and Research Conference was organized by the Capstone Committee of the University Writing Program.
