Scaffold: A Showcase of Vanderbilt First-Year Writing is a digital collection of first-year writing curated by the Vanderbilt Writing Studio. Conceived as an extension of the annual Undergraduate Writing SymposiumScaffold creates a space to honor and celebrate undergraduates' accomplishments as writers, scholars, and artists in their formative first year of college.

    By pairing each piece in the collection with a recorded reflection from the author, Scaffold aims to highlight the developing writing processes and learning experiences so central to the growth of undergraduate writers. We hope it acts as a source of inspiration and of scaffolded learning support for students and instructors alike going forward.
