The KU Composition Conference is a day-long forum in which students share their writing.This year, we invite all KU students to submit academic essays, creative pieces, and multi-media projects that engage in the theme of “Writing the World.” This theme invites us to consider the following:
- What does it mean to write from a particular place or space in the world?
- How do our identities allow us to write about particular ways we engage with the world?
- What kinds of worlds do we inhabit personally, socially, intellectually, professionally? How can writing give expression to that?
- In what ways do we use writing to help define or describe our worlds?
- How is writing in the academic world different from or similar to expectations in the professional world? How can we translate academic writing to real-world applications?
- How can personal narratives, memoir, and non-fiction writing allow us to articulate our lived experiences in the world?
- How have new forms of writing digitally (online, through gaming and multi-media, in social media forums) altered the way we see the world?
Due Date for Submissions: Friday, March 18, 2016
