The Writing Affiliates initiative aims to bring the culture of the Expository Writing Program into the First Year Residential Experience (FYRE) residence halls, providing support for a year in the life of a student writer. Through events designed to address the challenges of first-year writing courses, this program fosters a productive culture of academic writing in the residence halls.
EWP Writing Affiliates collaborate with Student Affairs professionals as well as student staff to create a residential community that supports first year students' intellectual, social, cultural, and ethical development. As with all Living Learning programs, Writing Affiliates combine formal teaching, information learning, creative activities, and personal support to create an enhanced student experience.
The program has been on hiatus during the pandemic. We will update this site as any new information becomes available.
