Writing for a Real World (WRW), now celebrating its nineteenth publication, is dedicated to providing a public forum for the finest undergraduate academic writing at the University of San Francisco. Created in partnership between the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences and the Department of Rhetoric and Language, WRW publishes student writing with commentary from students and their instructors. We welcome not only essays and research papers, but also scientific, business, and technical reports.
