Writing Program

The University of Arizona Writing Program offers first-year and advanced courses in writing to help students become more capable of writing for personal, civic, academic, and professional purposes and audiences. Our courses aim to help students develop their creativity, their craft, and their ability to represent themselves and their ideas in language. Students practice strategies for generating ideas from experience and research and for effectively engaging in a recursive process of writing and revision. One of our primary goals is to enable students to become reflective writers with a vocabulary for talking and thinking about writing. Revision, the process of improving written work through multiple drafts and reader feedback, is central to this development.
