Writing for a Real World (WRW), now celebrating its seventeenth 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.
Free copies of past issues are now available from Gleeson Library's Digital Collections. Our anthology is also sold in the campus bookstore and used in courses that require writing.
Each winning writer will receive a copy of the journal and an individual award. All winners and honorable mentions and their guests are invited to an awards reception on campus. Winners and honorable mention recipients will be announced during Summer 2020. The eighteenth issue will be released in 2021.
