The Center for Writing Excellence (CWE) welcomes Professor Cedar Marie from Art + Design, as their 2021-2022 Faculty Writing Fellow. During the fall, Cedar will meet regularly with Director Jonathan Rylander and Assistant Director Andrew Suralski to share best practices and explore the relationship between writing center methods and art pedagogies. She will also meet regularly with CWE undergraduate interns, observing sessions in the center and talking with interns about linkages among writing, art, and sculptural design. During spring semester, Cedar will carry her experiences to wider campus spaces, presenting on her work in the program and what it might mean for the future of how we teach writing. In the words of Jonathan Rylander, CWE Director, “the program, we hope, will foster more creative and capacious understanding of the writing process.” As an artist and writer, Cedar’s desire to apply for the program stemmed from her interest in understanding writing as the art of assemblage. In the long-term, we expect this program will spark more collaborative work related to the teaching and mentoring of writing across the curriculum. Stay tuned for updates as the program progresses next year!
