The Thompson Writing Program (TWP) helps students develop as writers from their first through senior years at Duke, and supports faculty who teach writing in a wide range of courses across the curriculum. We do this in several ways:
Deliberations, the TWP's journal of first-year writing, is published every October. The journal features original student essays from the previous year's first-year writing classes. During Family Weekend, the authors discuss their projects at a reception honoring their work.
The National Day on Writing (October 20) is a day to celebrate writing in all its diverse forms. Campuses around the country plans activities that explore how we write, when we write, why we write, and what we write. The TWP invents a new prompt every year, then encourages people from across the Duke community to talk about their writing and writing practices.
Writing 101: Academic Writing is a one-semester course taken during the first year by all Duke University undergraduate students.
TWP Writing Studio
The TWP Writing Studio offers Duke University undergraduate and graduate students an opportunity to meet with trained writing consultants to discuss individual writing concerns.
Writing in the Disciplines
The primary aim of the Writing in the Disciplines program is to support our faculty in all aspects of their work with student writing. This includes consulting on assignment design to developing new W-coded courses to offering workshops on giving feedback and grading.
Faculty Write Program
The Faculty Write Program focuses on faculty-as-writers and aims to reinvigorate commitments to writing and teaching writing at Duke. The program cultivates multidisciplinary communities of writers to advance faculty writing and conversations about writing and research across the curriculum.
