The Skipped Generation Writers Project, a collaboration between the Lifelong Learning Institute and the Department of English in Arts & Sciences, paired 11 undergraduate students with 11 senior Lifelong Learning Institute members on a nine-week collaborative nonfiction writing project. Each participant worked closely with his or her partner on his or her story, and topics included travel, family relationships, first love, disappointments and community-mindedness.
