Writing in the Academic World

Each academic year, a new edition of Writing in the Academic World appears on this site.

This online magazine celebrates student academic writing. WAW includes winning writing from a wide range of academic disciplines. It does not include fiction or poetry, which fall into the realm of creative writing.

For many Northwest College students, academic writing constitutes the majority of what they write in college classes. But the audience typically consists of one person - the instructor. WAW helps bring the research, analytical, organizational and other writing skills of Northwest student writers into the spotlight.

Past winners are available in the Archives.
