CWP Students presenting work at Chiang Research Fair

We are the heart
of writing instruction
at UC Berkeley.

We teach writing as a craft, and work with students at all levels of expertise,
from those wishing to satisfy the University's composition requirements, through
intermediate writers looking to expand their horizons, to seasoned scribes who
want to hone their skills in our upper-division courses.
