Welcome to CTW 2023!

A happy, healthy Autumn to all! Prof. Kwong, editor for City Tech Writer, checking in with former and future sponsoring professors, former and future sponsoring students, and former and future Creative Muses. I wanted to let you know that, in its third year as an all-digital journal, City Tech Writer is still connecting our community with the written word.

Please submit excellent student writing (from any discipline) to City Tech Writer, Vol. 18, by uploading a Word document or PDF at

The deadline for submissions is November 15, 2022.


City Tech Writer is a journal of outstanding student writing. STEM disciplines are especially encouraged to submit. Last year we had an absolutely incredible crop of students who submitted their thought provoking, wildly imaginative, and heart wrenching work. These pieces are supplemented by audio versions of each piece, occasional videos that dive deeper into the text, and in one case, a very special 20 minute documentary about Asian students and professors at City Tech. Check out last year’s issue and get inspired here:

Writers whose words are included in City Tech Writer become part of a community that celebrates a year-end virtual reception. These receptions cap off a year of events, such as 2021’s Compose and Collaborate webinar. Check out last year’s reception here:

Finally, I’m thrilled to announce a new addition to this year’s issue: the Photo Riffs Contest, a chance for student writers to collaborate with one of the talented photographers who contributed to last year’s issue. Unlike the usual CTW process, the entries to this particular contest do not have to be sponsored, but they do need to undergo a process of engagement and consultation with either a Writing Tutor or an English professor. Details here.

Looking forward to seeing your submissions!!

Professor Lucas Kwong

Editor, City Tech Writer
