Students Share, Learn, Improve Writing During Annual Event

By Rob Detmering

At the 2016 Celebration of Student Writing (CoSW) last week, UofL undergraduate students from a variety of courses showcased their writing through posters, readings, and digital media presentations. Over 100 students presented their work at the event, which was held March 30 in the Ekstrom Learning Commons, its location since 2014.


Highlights of CoSW included “Concept in 60” digital videos, where students must convey a single idea in just sixty seconds.  Another event, genre analysis assignments, featured students exploring conventions of particular types of writing, such as scholarly articles in different fields.  As in years past, many confident and enthusiastic students attended the event to learn and showcase their writing, research, and learning.

Co-sponsored by the Composition Program, Ekstrom Library, and the Writing Center, CoSW was made possible through the efforts of Assistant Directors of Composition and PhD students Travis Rountree, Rachel Gramer and Drew Holladay, as well as the support of Director of Composition Brenda Brueggemann.

On the library side, Rob Detmering, Bruce Keisling, and Josh Whitacre provided liaison and logistical support; Delinda Buie and George Martinez represented the Libraries as judges; and Ashley Triplett created a wonderful promotional poster (below).
