Join us for a panel discussion with a group of seniors, members of the Class of 2023, who as first-year students were selected to have their work published in Scaffold: A Showcase of Vanderbilt First-Year Writing, Vol. 2 (Spring 2020).
We’ll be asking them to reflect back on their Scaffold pieces and, more importantly, giving them a chance to reflect on their journey as writers throughout their undergraduate experience now that they are entering their final semester of college and offer their perspective and advice to students earlier on that path.
This event is co-sponsored by the Writing Studio and Vanderbilt University Libraries.
Date: January 17, 2023
Time: 5:00 – 6:00 pm
Location: Vanderbilt Author’s Room (418A Central Library)
About Scaffold: A Showcase of Vanderbilt First-Year Writing
Starting in Spring 2019, Scaffold: A Showcase of Vanderbilt First-Year Writing is a digital collection of first-year writing curated by the Vanderbilt Writing Studio. Conceived as an extension of the annual Undergraduate Writing Symposium, Scaffold creates a space to honor and celebrate undergraduates’ accomplishments as writers, scholars, and artists in their formative first year of college.
By pairing each piece in the collection with a recorded reflection from the author, Scaffold aims to highlight the developing writing processes and learning experiences so central to the growth of undergraduate writers. It is intended to serve as an ongoing source of inspiration and of scaffolded learning support for students and instructors alike.
