About The Event

UCLA Writing Programs and the Department of English cordially invite you to our third annual Professional Writing Minor Capstone Seminar Colloquium, organized as part of Undergraduate Research Week 2024. In this series of panels, students from the Professional Writing Minor (PWM) will present an exciting array of capstone seminar projects.

A new and growing minor with just eleven graduating seniors in 2020, forty-five of the PWM’s eighty-five graduating seniors in AY 23-24 will present on a rich diversity of topics that exemplify the range, depth, and individualized paths possible within the Professional Writing Minor.

The colloquium is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. Friends, family, faculty, staff, and students are welcome to attend. Join us to experience writing as an act of both communication and exploration as these emerging writers and soon-to-be graduates share their insights and discoveries.
