Wildcat Writers

Wildcat Writers facilitates reciprocal learning partnerships between the UA Writing Program and local area high schools. ​ Participants connect with audiences in the broader community to promote public engagement, encouraging personal, professional, and intellectual growth for students and teachers.

Wildcat Writers is an evidence-based program that tracks the recruitment and retention of Title 1 high school students coming to our university, and uses the teacher and student feedback to improve upon community writing best practices for co-teaching and reciprocal community engagement. Funding has historically come from the university Writing Program and other university-based grants for community engagement; however, we are eligible for federal funds that track underrepresented students attending a Hispanic-Serving Institution.
