First Annual Writing Week – Oct. 18-22


The First Year Writing Program at RIC – www.ric.edu/firstyearwriting – is sponsoring its First Annual Writing Week starting Oct. 18. Details below.





The First Year Writing Program is dedicated to introducing students to the rhetoric, practices, and expectations of writing in the academy. In doing so, it strives to help students understand the recursive process of writing; to invest in writing as a tool for discovery and understanding as well as conveyance; and to appreciate the ways in which different genres and situations require different ways of writing. In all of this, the FYW Program prioritizes the needs and experiences of students enrolled in its courses, and is committed to providing the best curriculum and instruction for those students.
