Knights Write 2021 (virtual)
This three-day virtual event celebrates outstanding writing and research by UCF students in ENC 1101 and 1102 and upper division and graduate programs' writing and rhetoric courses. Knights Write 2021 spotlights the transformative nature of the first-year writing program at UCF for students from across the university and the powerful impact of advanced rhetorical study on students’ research and writing abilities. Events are hosted by the Department of Writing and Rhetoric.
The Showcase of First Year Writing presents original writing and research by first year students at UCF through virtual posters and panel presentations. Across these media, students showcase what they have learned through the study and practice of writing in ENC 1101 and 1102. Join us in recognizing students' creative and sophisticated written responses to questions such as: How does writing work in the world? How does writing make a difference and get things done? What roles can my writing play in academic, professional, civic, and personal contexts? Awards recognize outstanding Knights Write poster presentations and excellence in publication for Stylus: Journal of First Year Writing.
The Symposium of Upper Division and Graduate Programs in Writing and Rhetoric features virtual presentations of student work from a range of advanced writing and rhetoric courses. Upper division posters and panel presentations highlight the breadth of methodologies, technologies, and genres that are integral to contemporary professional, public, and personal writing. Graduate Programs panels will also spotlight faculty research on the teaching of writing along with work from current graduate students. Awards recognize outstanding Knights Write poster presentations and excellence in publication for Imprint and Convergence Rhetoric.
