With Different Eyes Conference

Sat 11/4/2023 • 8:30AM - 3:30PM PDT

UCLA Moore Hall

The UCLA Writing Project invites you to the 33rd annual With Different Eyes Conference, November 4, 2023. We focus on access and equity for all students, with our multilingual and multicultural students center-stage, including newcomers, students approaching advanced literacy, and speakers of African American English and indigenous languages. We attend to a spectrum of social justice issues—connected to matters of race and gender, environment, media. Given we are the Writing Project, we love to demonstrate how writing empowers all students, up and down the grade levels and across content areas.
