This event, held on 5.31.21 from 3-5 pm, featured writers from the latest issue of City Tech Writer, City Tech’s journal of outstanding student writing. Along with faculty who sponsored their work, writers discussed developing their work from a classroom assignment to a published article. They also discussed collaborating with other students, professors, and CTW editor Professor Lucas Kwong. We heard readings of excerpts, hosted breakout groups, and had a larger Q and A session. Profs. Kwong and Atilio Barreda (Computer Systems Technology) hosted.
Attendees learned about the digital publishing process and its dependence on thoughtful, collaborative scholarship. They also learned how to build collaborative relationships with faculty, in order to translate research into published work. Finally, in being introduced to City Tech Writer, students were encouraged to submit future work and join our community of writers.
