  • Date: 02/06/2014
  • Time: 05:00PM - 06:00PM

  • Location: Literati Bookstore 124 East Washington

  • Description:

    Word² (word squared) lets you hear directly from U-M professors about
    their challenges, processes, and expectations as writers and also as readers of student
    writing. Word² pairs one esteemed University professor with Sweetland faculty member and WCBN Living Writers host T Hetzel for a conversation about writing. These
    conversations offer a rare glimpse into the writing that professors do outside the classroom and
    how they handle the same challenges student writers face.  Join us for a conversation with:
