The Writing Institute
Writing Support and Opportunities to Grow as a Writer Throughout Your Time at Antioch
The Writing Institute works to help scaffold writing skills across the curriculum and offers printed resources and workshops that support writing projects across disciplines, as well as those common to the Antioch experience, including the Life Aims Paper, the self-design major Statement of Inquiry, senior capstone projects, and the Senior Reflection Paper. The Writing Institute also provides opportunities to engage with published authors, to explore and develop new modes of writing through workshops and events, and to share your writing with the community and beyond.
The Writing Program
Prior to graduation, students are expected to master written communication ability that demonstrates development and effective expression of ideas and arguments in writing. This involves learning how to work in a variety of genres and styles. Written communication skills and abilities are developed through iterative experiences across the curriculum.

- ENG 101 or ENG 105 English Composition

Beyond General Education
In addition to satisfying general education requirements, students may also incorporate both creative and analytical writing into the design of their major. Faculty teach the following:
