This semester, Lang’s First-Year Writing Program is hosting a series of Craft-Lesson Lunches where faculty will present dynamic and inspiring lessons in the craft of writing. These weekly lunches will run like an interactive seminar, bringing writing students and faculty together for both in-depth discussions of writing fundamentals and the more advanced lessons in what it takes to write convincing and arresting work.
