Gabriel Fried

Win Horner Award Presented to English Professor

Gabriel Fried’s The Literature of Baseball course investigates why baseball, and its association with American optimism, is often used by literary writers in complex, and often ironic, ways.

Funding for WI Courses

Historically, The Campus Writing Program (CWP) has sought to fund all WI courses according to a 1:20 faculty-to-student ratio ($110 for every student beyond enrollment of 20 and up to 300 students). This funding has exceeded CWP’s allocation each year and thus created a deficit.

National Day on Writing Activities

On October 20th, to help celebrate the National Day of Writing, we will have a venue in the Student Union from 10am-2pm! At this venue, we’ll celebrate writing at Mizzou with events such as: Pizza for a Poem, Photo Collage of MU Writers, Writing Marathons, and more!
