Writing in Community

Writing is an integral part of faculty’s scholarly work as well as a key objective in most of the courses we teach at Pratt.  Being true to our values of community-building and in our attempt to support SoTL work on campus, the CTL supports faculty writing through organized informal writing spaces as well as peer-led writing workshops several times a semester. All of these events are open to all Pratt faculty, and graduate students and interested staff are all welcome. Writing in Community (WIC) events provide focused time and space for our community to write together in parallel, with the added benefit of shared accountability. Join us in communal quiet work time, or writing circles and workshops this semester.
