About the Visiting Speaker Series

The ISU Writing Program’s annual Grassroots Writing Research Visiting Speaker Series brings nationally recognized scholars in writing research to campus for 2–3 day visits, during which they present their current research, run workshops and discussion sessions, and talk with both graduate and undergraduate students about writing. Now a well-established part of our Writing Program, the Series reflects our ongoing endeavors to promote discussions about writing research, in and beyond the classroom and in and beyond ISU. Although the scholars’ presentations are not available to the public, our instructors are able to access archived presentations to share with their students in Writing Program courses.
