The Writing Center Presents Table Talks

The Nyack College Manhattan campus Writing Center will host a new series called “Table Talks” for undergraduate and graduate students. These sessions exemplify the Center’s effort to nurture a culture of excellence in writing campuswide…”because all writers need feedback.” Each session will  provide a platform for people to discuss ideas and to collaborate with a Writing Center scribe and their peers. Students are invited to bring questions and engage in topics tailored to their courses.
