About YU Writ Live and "Get WRIT"


"Get WRIT" is our first livestream series available on YouTube. In 2021, the YouTube channel YU WRIT Live was launched by students in WRIT 4001: Digital Authoring Practicum as a means to connecting their writing interests to audiences (students, fellow writers) at home due to the pandemic. Stay tuned for more content in terms to come.
