Ink: Chronicles in Composition is the WRCS program’s student publication. Each year, WRCS faculty choose the best of several essays authored by students in English 101 and 202, and publish those essays in Ink. Ink gives you access to a collection of writing by students who a semester before were in your seat. As you exit composition class, Ink gives you the opportunity to publish your work, and compete for one of three cash prizes awarded to the best of the best.
Ink is not just words on a page. Ink is a state of mind. Ink is creative expression. Ink is talking, reading and thinking. Ink is written by students for students. Inside Ink you’ll find writing about family and friends and conversations about cultural and personal identity. You’ll read rhetorical analyses and well-researched essays. You’ll discover varying models for good writing, research, documentation, and editing. But the one thing these pieces of writing have in common is a strong voice. We hope you’ll read these essays and be inspired to test out your own voice during your composition class this year.
Students: Please click here to submit your ENGL 101 and/or ENGL 202 projects for possible inclusion in next year's Ink. Deadline for each year is the last day of classes during Spring semester.
