The First-Year Writing Program at the University of West Georgia encompasses all sections of ENGL 1101 and 1102. These two courses are required for all entering students (unless exempted by university-approved scores on college entrance exams). First-Year Writing faculty are committed to working with first-year students to help them develop the college-level writing and critical thinking skills that they need to be successful in all of their college courses.

Questions or inquiries about the First-Year Writing Program, including student concerns about ENGL 1101 or 1102 courses, should be directed to Ms. Brandy Chambless (, Associate Director of First-Year Writing.
