Detailed Description:

The UWP is an independent unit that teaches a broad range of courses in writing in the disciplines and professions, these courses meeting UC Davis's two-course requirement in English composition. See our website for details. In addition, we offer a large number of workshops on writing-in-teaching to faculty in and across disciplines, plus training workshops and courses for new GTAs, plus workshops for graduate students across disciplines to improve their writing. Each year the UWP co-sponsors the Community Book Project, a months-long series of events centered on a book of interdisciplinary interest. We also sponsor Prized Writing, an annual magazine of outstanding student writing from across disciplines.
