2020 Undergraduate Writing Symposium


Vanderbilt’s Undergraduate Writing Symposium is an annual event that showcases the talents of our undergraduate writers. Students representing diverse majors and all levels of undergraduate study submit their work to a rigorous double blind-review process in order to be selected for the symposium. The 12th annual symposium features a collection of argumentative essays, creative writing, and multi-modal projects covering a wide array of topics and styles. This year’s virtual symposium also includes creative performances and video interviews to explore the writing process of our talented participants.
