Writing for the Public Eye

November 19, 2011 – January 6, 2012
Location: Perkins Gallery
Sponsor(s): Thompson Writing Program
Artist(s): 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.

This exhibition was sponsored in part by the E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Foundation.
