Virginia Tech Composition

Welcome to, an online resource for instructors, students, and others who share an interest in the Virginia Tech Composition Program. The program’s leadership team, in consultation with the Composition Committee, program instructional faculty, and the Department of English, curate this site with the goal of giving visibility and circulation to the best of what the program has to offer. Each year, the Composition Program provides instruction, guidance, and support to nearly 6,000 Hokies in 300 sections of ENGL1105 and ENGL1106, a foundational two-course sequence designed to orient one and all to effective writing practices in and beyond the university.

We’re continuously updating with materials we think will be helpful and informative for instructors, students, staff and administrators, alumni, and colleagues at other universities. Our updates aspire to be responsive to you, so if there is something you would like to see added or a particular question you have that is not addressed here–yet!–we hope you’ll consider reaching out via email to composition -AT- New entries on the site are also relayed to the HokiesWrite Twitter account, which you can find and follow at @hokieswrite.
