Writing Excellence

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 to develop their abilities to negotiate different topics as a writer, to analyze arguments of others, to communicate effectively arguments yourself, to collaborate on ideas, and to practice making choices about what, how, and why to communicate with others.
