Special Events

We are proud to host events throughout the semester to engage the campus community in conversations about writing! Click below for upcoming and past offerings.

#FacultyAsWriters Series

Every semester, we bring together faculty from across disciplines to discuss the role of writing in the discovery process. Geared towards undergraduates, the series seeks to demystify academic writing at the research university and expose student writers to diverse approaches and strategies for effective engagement. By promoting a writing culture that embraces process, the series seeks to embolden student writers to own their voice and hone their ability to contribute to the academic discourse at Cal and beyond.

#WriteBack Poetry Reading


We culminated Fall 2016 with an evening of poetry featuring Cal writers. Readers included Leslie Valencia, Ricky Santuario, Shivani Narang, and our very own SLC poet-in-residence, Jade Cho, reading from her new book, In the Tongue of Ghosts. The event also spotlighted brand new work from SLC student staff Abigail Zhong, Bri'Unia Stock, Marnie Lowe, Max Lopez, and Parker Kjellin-Elder, and an open mic for undergraduate readers.
