The Importance of Writing

What are the issues facing writing in the 21st century? How does one even write in this age of status updates, tweets, hashtags, and snapchat? How do you navigate the demands of effective, engaging written communication?  The Writing Excellence Program at Eckerd College helps students develop the ability to negotiate different topics as a writer, analyze arguments of others, effectively communicate arguments yourself, collaborate on ideas, and practice making choices about what, how, and why to communicate with others.
