Every year, the Professional Writing Students' Association (PWSA) invites you to participate in a themed symposium. At these events, students can present their ideas, reflect on their personal experiences and network with peers. Read below for more details on upcoming events and recaps on previous years.
When change is constant, writing can be a powerful expression. Sententia evokes not only ways of living, but ways of knowing, ways of being and thinking and writing, which, in times of flux, open the possibility for transformation and writerly acts of resistance.
In this, the 5th annual PWSA Symposium, our ten panelists explored the power we have to make our own stories and spaces and selves - to activate sententia as a call to writerly action and resistance, to dismantle and decolonize dominant “instructions in living,” to explore diverse ways of acting, speaking, living, knowing, being, thinking, writing—and languaging—in sonic acts of sententia.
