Symposium on Student Writing
The Symposium on Student Writing is a one-day showcase of student writing in composition courses at UofL, held in the Spring semester. Students can submit posters, give oral presentations, or participate in poetry readings. The Symposium provides students and instructors an opportunity to exchange ideas about the design choices writers make as they move from rough to revised versions of their work.

2014 Symposium on Student Writing

***New Location: Ekstrom Library Learning Commons***
Write. Search. Discover.
All writers search and discover as they uncover what it is they want to say. In the 2014 Symposium, we want to showcase all of the ways in which students use writing as a tool to search and discover. Thus, in our new and expanded format, through poster presentations, oral presentations, and reading their creative writing, we invite students to participate in showcasing their work. Through these multiple formats, we will display the important place that searching and discovering plays in rhetorically effective writing. All types of projects are welcome and we encourage instructors to craft assignments that fit the needs of their class. We look forward to showcasing the work from students in the Composition Program at the University of Louisville in the 2014 Symposium on Student Writing.
Students are invited to design poster presentations that demonstrate the role that searching and discovering plays in the construction of a specific writing project. Poster projects are encouraged to be displayed on tri-fold boards or foam poster boards. We hope to display the posters in the Ekstrom Library Learning Commons before and after the Symposium. Digital posters are also welcome. However, the student must be present while the digital poster is displayed.
Oral Presentation Session
Students are invited to work individually or in groups to design presentations of their work. Presentations may explore the process of searching and discovering that led to the current project.
Creative Writing Reading
Students are invited to share their creative work during the Symposium. Readings lasting between 15 and 20 minutes will be shared in the Bingham Poetry Room. Students interested in participating should email Hollye at email@example.com by 5:00pm on Friday March 7th.
