What Writing Means to Me - WRD Awards
In April, 2015, WRD held its end-of-semester ceremony in the Boone Center, commemorating students and faculty alike for their talent and hard work. Afterwards, we caught up with several faculty members and students to ask them about what writing means to them, and beyond them.

Our age is an age of writing. Social media. Podcasts. Websites. Video. News. Stories. Analysis. Critique. Reports. Advertisements. Technical documentation. Writing is everywhere we look.
WRD prepares you for a career in writing. Every industry includes writing. Every industry supports the writing of internal and external documents (memos, reports, technical documents, research studies, social media usage, website development). Every industry sponsors trade writing (magazines, journals, newsletters, other publications).
Our topic is Excellence in Writing, the annual awards from UK’s Department of Writing, Rhetoric, & Digital Studies. Prof Jenny Rice is joined by award-winners Tom Eblen & Peter Brackney.
