The Composition Program at the University of Louisville has a long history of helping students develop their composing processes to meet the challenges of writing in their academic, professional, and personal lives. Our courses support students as they use writing to learn, to solve problems, and to communicate with a variety of audiences. From first-year composition through our advanced writing courses, we encourage students to compose in multiple drafts, to seek reader feedback, and to think rhetorically about their writing purpose, context, and audience expectations.

The 2013 Symposium on Student Writing
The Art of Remix
March 27, 2013
Sponsored by the University of Louisville Composition Program
live in a world of remix, a world where texts, sounds, images, and
ideas are created and recreated, mixed and remixed,
so that they can be seen and understood in new forms, new places, and
new directions. In writing, the idea of remix is at the heart of the
revision process because to remix something is to encourage writers and
readers alike to re-see it. In the 2013 Symposium
on Student Writing, we want to showcase remix as an important and viable
way to understand not only the revision process but also the importance
of the rhetorical choices writers need to make when trying to convey
any message (in any form) to a target audience.
Thus, we are calling for student presentations from writing classes
across the university that illustrate the various forms remix can take
in student writing and the skills students use and learn when remixing
their written work. Through these presentations,
we will showcase the important place remix holds in writing courses
across the curriculum and the complex rhetorical skills that are
exercised through the act of re-envisioning a piece of written work.
Presentations for the symposium may take the form of videos, podcasts, posters, PowerPoint and Prezi presentations, songs,
or any other format that lends itself to illustrating the art of remix.
