SNL Writing at the Student Success in Writing Conference
The 2017 Student Success in Writing Conference in Savannah, GA offered local color like crossing the Savannah river by ferry and the ham salad at the lunch buffet. Southern Georgia University likewise provided a regional frame for the event, but the ideas shared were far from provincial. The pressures that are facing higher education in the US are not isolated and this conference gave presenters an opportunity to share strategies and discussions with colleagues from across the nation. The SNL Writing Program’s presentation “From Gap Year to Gap Decade(s): Supporting Returning Adult Student Writers” allowed us to share our expertise in developing courses and support services for mid-career Adult students.
