In partnership with the Center for Civic Engagement, the Center for the Writing Arts and The Cook Family Writing Program are offering a course in Winter Quarter 2018 titled "The Art of Nonfiction: Exploring Writing for Social Change." This course is intended especially for students with recent experience in service and community engagement.  Students interested in writing who wish to link their interest more fully to civic engagement are also invited to apply.

Students in this course will work together to explore the uses of writing to reflect analytically and imaginatively on personal experience as well to inform, persuade, and engage readers. Each student will also have the opportunity to develop plans for a sustained writing project based on individual interests and goals.

Students interested in enrolling in this course should complete a brief application posted below no later than Wednesday, Nov. 1.
