On March 6, faculty, students, staff, and community members attended the opening reception of “Text / Messages: The Spring 2013 WRD Writing Gallery.” This exhibit, which ran through the end of March at The Hub at W.T.’s, featured work by the students of Writing, Rhetoric & Digital Media classes and comprises photo essays, podcasts, websites, documentaries and other types of writing created in WRD 110 and 111. Topics include “Negative Effects of Alcohol,” “We the People! Care About Your Voting Rights,” “Social Media Primer” and more.
The two foundational courses, Composition and Communication I & II, prepare students at UK for writing, speaking, design and creation in an integrated way. Recognizing that today’s students need to be skilled in all areas of communication, including visual design, spoken communication and text, UK Libraries is pleased to partner with the Division of Writing, Rhetoric, and Digital Media to provide experiences such as the Writing Gallery to UK students.
