The Student Writers Union (SWU) is an active group of students interested in creative writing, editing, and publishing.  We meet weekly to workshop our own creative writing, discuss ideas and theories related to the process of writing, and talk about new books of interest.

Throughout the school year, SWU officers work closely with the editorial staff of FishHook to assist in soliciting submissions, organizing contests, and hosting the annual launch party & reading when the new issue is released each fall.
