Art of Writing

Art of Writing helps prepare undergraduates who have completed UC Berkeley’s Reading & Composition requirement to write lucidly, directly, and eloquently in a variety of styles. At the heart of the program, grant-funded seminars create collaborative and intimate writing communities among undergraduates, a graduate student instructor, and a faculty member.

Art of Writing offers annual Daniel E. Koshland, Jr. Fellowships to support graduate students in refining their pedagogical skills with experts in the field. Internationally acclaimed authors and critics lecturing on the process and practice of writing also form an integral part of the Art of Writing community.

Art of Writing at the Doreen B. Townsend Center for the Humanities, UC Berkeley, is supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and a private donation. Visit the Art of Writing website to learn more.
