One of the most common questions art or design students have with regards to writing is “why do I need to do this?” The link between creative visual practice and written communication is not always visible, and shedding light on this relationship is one of the goals of the WAC initiative. One of the ways writing helps creative practice for students is making unconscious intents and outcomes evident, which can help them work through creative blocks. Understanding student views and experience of this process is essential for improving approaches to teaching and learning. This roundtable will be facilitated by the WAC Student Fellows, Donya Aref and Calum Csunyoscka, with presentations by students from FoA, FoD and FoLAS/SIS.
