Journal of First-Year Writing
The Journal of First-Year Writing is an online journal intended to showcase quality writing from students in the First-Year Writing Program at Anderson University. The essays selected were written by students in response to a variety of essay prompts throughout the course of the semester. Effort has been made to select superior work that demonstrates original thought and effective communication geared toward a particular audience. Some are more formal arguments that rely heavily on research and persuasion. Others are more informal, written from a first-person perspective as the writer explores and reflects on a particular topic. The online journal is dedicated as an online platform where our students can share their ideas and newfound perspectives, receive recognition for their work, and make a meaningful contribution to our academic community.
The Journal of First-Year Writing is published twice a year at the end of each semester. Please click here for submission dates and guidelines.
