Writing Community

CWP builds community around writing on campus and beyond by hosting events for students and teachers, interviewing campus writers, maintaining a resource library, and publishing an online forum for the teaching of writing across campus.

We are proud of our campus writing community, and we work to showcase that community’s talents.

Multilingual Student Writers

The Symposium on Multilingual Student Writers addresses multilingual student needs in the writing classroom and provides teachers with hands-on approaches they can adapt for use in their specific educational settings.

Berkeley Writers at Work

The Berkeley Writers at Work series was begun in 1997 as a forum for campus writers of note to discuss their writing process. Research and teaching are the two primary goals of a large research university like Berkeley. Research is highlighted in many ways on this campus; to a lesser degree, so is teaching. However, writing itself—the primary way that faculty convey the results of their research—is rarely discussed.

Classroom in Progress Brownbag

"Classroom in Progress" is a monthly brownbag series where graduate students, faculty members, and others interested in writing instruction come together in an informal environment to share ideas and concerns regarding classroom structures, assignments, activities, policies, and procedures.

Writing Across Berkeley

Writing Across Berkeley originates in the College Writing Programs, but it is being offered to the entire campus and beyond in the hope and expectation that it will call to the campus’s attention our common ground, the enterprise of writing.


Arthur J. Quinn Room

Our professional resource library and meeting room, located at 114 Wheeler Hall, is named for Art Quinn, the College Writing Programs’ first director. The library, which is open to visitors by appointment, houses texts that focus on composition studies and English language learning.
