Location: Perkins Gallery

Sponsor: Thompson Writing Program

Artist: Duke University Students

This exhibit showcases the ways Duke's Thompson Writing Program faculty take student writing beyond the walls of their individual classrooms out into the public eye. Through exhibits of student work at the Nasher Museum and Perkins Library, public blogs, the Deliberations first year journal of writing, service learning projects in the Durham community, the annual "Critical Ink" research showcase, and the Reader Project, many first year Writing 20 students gain experience in how to write for a public audience.
