Celebration of Writing Day

This event, which is sponsored by the University Writing Board, celebrates student writing across the disciplines. We wish to recognize the effort students have put into course assignments and other writing endeavors. This event is held each spring. Every student is invited read an excerpt of their writing and awards are given in each category.  Celebration of Writing Day is always a crowd–pleaser, eliciting emotions as diverse as the student writing.

We encourage submissions from students in all disciplines, including science, technology, social science, art, history, education,or other disciplines where writing provides a necessary analysis tool. We welcome critical reviews of arts and cultural activity, social and political analyses, news stories, book reviews, and science reports. Of course, we welcome creative fiction, drama and verse.  The most resent COW application can be found at the Writing Board's web site.
