General Education English's Annual Celebration of Student Writing

Please consider having your classes participate in MTSU's Annual Celebration of Student Writing, which will take place in the Student Union Ballroom on Friday, April 19, 2024 from 1:00-3:00pm.

Hosted by General Education English, this writing exhibition will introduce the wider university community to the exciting work happening in English classes by showcasing a wide variety of student writing, from projects developed in first-year writing and sophomore literature classes to academic and creative compositions completed by advanced English students. 

Instructors are encouraged to ask students to create low-tech and interactive visual presentations (individual or collaborative), such as posters, artifacts, and/or small-scale reenactments (dressing up as a person, character, etc.) so that students might practice writing multimodally and for an audience outside of the classroom. One way to encourage your students to participate in this event is to allow them to present at the Celebration of Student Writing in lieu of taking a Final Exam. It's also an excellent opportunity for first-year writing students to present their research papers to a new audience!
