Spring Writing Workshops with UW

We all teach writing to one degree or another. This summer, University Writing offers two opportunities to help you get better at it:  

1. On May 18 & 19 we will offer six 50-minute Zoom workshops on effective methods in writing instruction. Participants will receive $50 (either in research money for full-time employees or supplemental salary for adjuncts). Please go here to register. *Adjuncts must be teaching in either Spring or Summer term.

2. Each summer you’re invited to read and discuss one book about teaching writing. This year’s selection is Provocations of Virtue, Notre Dame professor John Duffy’s book on how to teach ethics to college writing students. There will be a Zoom meeting for about an hour once a month from June–August to discuss Duffy’s work. Please email the University Writing secretaries at univ-writing@byu.edu to register for the summer reading group. The first 15 will get a free copy of the book.
