Committed to helping students become excellent writers who can communicate effectively in classroom, community, and civic settings.
Every time we write — whether in a personal, academic, or civic setting — we have a responsibility to do so in ways that are intellectually honest, responsive to our readers, and considerate of other views. Welcome to the University Writing Program.
Fresh Writing is a journal of exemplary essays produced by students in their first year of study at the University of Notre Dame. Essays are chosen for their engaging prose and the extent to which they successfully execute the conventions of writing genres students may encounter in other academic, civic, or professional contexts.
