Invitation to enroll in WP2201-J “Prizes and Popular Culture”

Students in FASS are invited to enroll in a writing course, WP2201-J “Prizes and Popular Culture” offered by the University Town Writing Program (UTWP).  While considering prizes and what we can learn from them with regard to culture, social trends and individual taste, students will also be practising writing strategies.  To get a sense of the variety of ideas that emerged during the previous semester, students can visit the website

WP 2201-J is scheduled for Tues & Fri 9am-11am; Tues & Fri 11am – 1pm; and Monday and Thursday 11pm-1pm.
