We are now accepting nominations for the 2018 Professional Writing Showcase, to be held on Tuesday, April 10, 2018, from 10am to 3pm in Stewart Center room 310. The Professional Writing Showcase is much like a poster session, where presenters create a visual display of their professional writing project and then talk to visitors about their work. Presentations range from digital projects such as websites and videos, to visual displays of posters, marketing projects, research papers, and instruction documents.
As a presenter, in addition to having the opportunity to discuss your excellent work with other students and faculty at the university, you have the chance to win one of several great prizes. Last year, we awarded over $2,000 in cash and prizes to students and instructors. Showcase is also a great entry to add to your resume or curriculum vitae!
The showcase also includes a reception with snacks and drinks for enjoying while you participate. Book representatives from Pearson, Cengage, and others will be on hand as well to show off new books and instructional materials for teaching technical writing and business writing. Finally, this event is a wonderful opportunity to network with fellow Purdue students as well as Professional Writing majors, graduate students, and professors. To participate, contact a writing instructor from fall 2017 or spring 2018!
