The CWW affords students the ability to come together around a common goal. By taking part in the CWW, students have the opportunity to hear from visiting authors, particularly women, non-binary, trans-women writers and poets. The Center invites students, staff, and faculty to participate in poetry slams, and increase their skills through writing workshops. It hosts the all-night write-in in Gramley Library. The Center resides in the “NEST,” a vibrant physical space where students can meet, socialize, and write together.
