Call For Papers

CFP for Composition Faculty Summit
Submissions due Friday September 25, 2015.
Essex County College in Newark, NJ will host a one day composition conference on October 23, 2015 from 12:00-3:00.
This conference seeks to share best practices in college writing and developmental writing courses. Some questions we would like to address:
How can we best serve our students at the high school and community college level so they have the skills they need to succeed once they transfer to a four-year college? 
How can we attempt to align curriculum? 
What role does technology play in student success?

We seek submissions on best practices from all writing instructors from a variety of fields (rhetoric and composition; technical writing; creative writing; and more) to explain their systems for assessing and evaluating student writing in the college classroom. We hope to share ideas on how to improve composition courses on the high school, community college, and university levels.  What issues are we facing and what are some potential strategies to remedy those issues?  
Pleas send all papers for consideration to:
