First Year Writing Program


The First-Year Writing Program at the University of West Georgia encompasses all sections of ENGL 1101 and 1102. These two courses are required for all entering students (unless exempted by university-approved scores on college entrance exams). First-Year Writing faculty are committed to working with first-year students to help them develop the college-level writing and critical thinking skills that they need to be successful in all of their college courses.

Information about the First-Year Writing Program, including course-specific policies, can be found on this page.

Questions or inquiries about the First-Year Writing Program, including student concerns about ENGL 1101 or 1102 courses, should be directed to Ms. Bonnie Adams (bjett@westga.edu), Director of First-Year Writing.

 Specific policies related to FYW courses, along with resources, can be found in the menu on the right.

Current full- and part-time teaching appointments in the FYW Program are listed here: http://www.westga.edu/english/index_109.php.
