Contests and Opportunities

The Harvard College Writing Program sponsors opportunities for undergraduates to pursue their interest in the craft of writing, the capacity of critical thinking, and the power of communicating ideas.

Key Terms: Voices from the Harvard Writing Program 

Published by the Harvard College Writing Program, Key Terms is a new online magazine devoted to exploring the world of analytical argument. It features writing by and interviews with Harvard affiliates-- alumni, faculty, professional staff, and students.  Please check back for the inaugural issue in mid-August.

Senior Thesis Competition 

The Harvard College Writing Program encourages senior thesis writers to showcase their original research, through the "pitch your thesis" competition. Produced by the Harvard College Writing Center, the competition encourages senior thesis writers to return to the "elements of an argument" introduced in Expos, as they develop a brief pitch, intended for a general audience.
