Distinguished Writing

In November 2020, the Composition Program began inviting submissions for distinguished writing. Each piece of writing is first nominated by an instructor, then submitted by a student in ENGL1105 or ENGL1106. Published writing includes the text itself, keywords, citation information, the project description or prompt, and the rights permissions provided by the author. This page will be updated as the program leadership team receives and publishes additional submissions. Please email composition -AT- vt.edu with any questions.
