Symposium on Writing

Symposium on Writing

Symposium on Writing

Every year the UWP conducts a symposium on writing, which features two guest speakers who conduct research in rhetoric or writing studies. Each guest speaker is invited to our campus to give a guest lecture, which is open to the public, and a faculty workshop open to UWT and local high school and college faculty. One speaker comes in the Autumn quarter, while the second comes in the Spring. 

The purpose of the symposium is to bring national and internationally acclaimed experts on writing and literacy to campus for the benefit of UWT communities and students in order to engage the teaching communities around UWT in discussions about teaching and assessing writing and literacy. The program especially encourages faculty and students from other colleges and high schools to come and join our discussions. The symposium is one way the UWP attempts to foster cross-institutional relationships and collaborations. All events are free to the community; however all events require that participants sign up (through an online registration).
