Rowan Writing Center and the National Day on Writing

Filed under: Uncategorized — LBA @ 12:23 pm

Our recently relocated and expanded writing center has some big plans for the upcoming semesters, and they have been engaging in fabulous activities to kick things off recently.  Last week, the Writing Center held an open house to mark the official “grand opening” of the new location.  On Tuesday of this week, the center celebrated National Day on Writing with a 24 hour writing marathon!  During that time, they helped over five dozen Rowan students with their writing, and generated more than sixty single-spaced pages of work.  You can check out the (impressive) writings at http://galleryofwriting.org/galleries/gallery_pieces.php?galleryid=313039

Sandy Tweedie, our esteemed colleague in Writing Arts, wrote an opinion piece for the Star Ledger about writing, the National Day on Writing, and Rowan.  You can read an online version of  his article online at http://blog.nj.com/njv_guest_blog/2009/10/national_day_on_writing_now_he.html

Kudos to Deb Martin (Writing Center Director), the student and professional staff of the center, and the Writing Arts Department, for engaging in this vitally important, and much needed, task of supporting students as they grow in their research and writing abilities.
