Are you interested in learning more about how to use writing strategies to strengthen your community partnerships? To create a broader impact on the community? Join us for a workshop focused on how to use many types of writing to meet your goals! 

We all use writing to communicate every day (through emails, text messages, and social media posts, as well as larger, more official tasks such as reports, white papers, or websites), and this workshop will help you consider how to navigate these genres of writing and more to build sustainable relationships. Faculty, staff, community partners, and students are invited to join us as we discuss multiple strategies and tools for using writing to document, develop, and reflect on the meaningful connections we make through community-university partnerships. Participants will hear from community-engaged scholar Dr. Erin Brock Carlson, learn to inventory and assess their writing practices, and take part in small- and large-group discussions about how best to approach writing and communication during your projects.  

Guest Speaker: Dr. Erin Brock Carlson, West Virginia University
