The Celebration of Student Writing

On April 20, 2018, English students met in the Miller Education Building to share projects created for a wide variety of English classes and subjects in an event called The Celebration of Student Writing. Officially, the event lasted from 1 to 4 pm, but set-up began hours before that time, largely conducted by a group of dedicated graduate students, teachers, and underclassmen.

But the real story of the event was the presentation of students’ works, scores of students’ works, only a small handful of whom are represented here for each had a story to tell about the creation of their projects or the purpose of their research.

The event wasn’t all poster-boards nor long talks with engaged and excited students, however; The Celebration of Student Writing also hosted the General Education and Upper Division writing awards ceremony, as well as some non-textual and group projects such as this quilt:

Plan on joining student researchers, writers, and makers again in 2019 for this growing exhibition of English students’ accomplishments!
