10th Annual Naylor Workshop | September 27-29, 2024

The Naylor Workshop on Undergraduate Research in Writing Studies brings together undergraduate students from institutions around the country (and the world) to conduct research in the broad field of writing studies.

During this workshop, you'll will work one-on-one with writing researchers in the fields of composition, rhetoric,  writing center studies, and any field related to literacy to discuss research goals and methodologies. In this intensive workshop, you’ll have the opportunity to move your proposed or ongoing research project forward toward possible presentation or publication, working side by side with national experts in writing studies, who act as mentors. Along the way, you'll learn more about refining your research question, as well as how to apply qualitative and quantitative research methods in ways that will enrich your study.
