We in First-Year Writing, with our colleagues at Parsons, hope these lunches can be opportunities to bring writing students and faculty together for both in-depth discussions of writing fundamentals and the more advanced lessons in what it takes to write convincing and arresting work. All are welcome. Write Scott Korb, Director of First-Year Writing, with any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org.
