In A Word

Words of Wisdom

Easy reading is damn hard writing. But if it's right, it's easy. It's the other way round, too. If it's slovenly written, then it's hard to read. It doesn't give the reader what the careful writer can give the reader.

— Maya Angelou

The University Click to Listen to In A Word PodcastWriting Center hosts a podcast entitled "In a Word" on our local public radio station, KAMU-FM. It airs every Wednesday morning at 8:30 am and provides short tips on writing and speaking.

The podcast was originally conceived and recorded by writing center consultant Mary Beth Schaefer. Later, Candace Hastings, then director of the University Writing Center, took over recording duties with the content being produced by members of the UWC staff, under the editorial direction of Nancy Vazquez and Dr. Valerie Balester. 

You can listen to the podcast online at KAMU-FM.

Episodes so far have included writing memos, cover letters, and thank you letters, designing slides, dealing with writer's block, and writing effective introductions, just to name a few.
