Everyday Writing

Leave a comment

To celebrate National Day on Writing yesterday (10.20.10), I compiled my texts, emails, blog revisions, Foursquare Check-ins, Facebook posts, Tweets, and handwritten notes to create this Wordle.  This is a celebration of the ways that writing is woven into the fabric of my everyday personal and professional life and an acknowledgment of the importance of digital writing and new new media in constructing myself as a writer.

Wordle: Everyday Writing

Author: Stephanie (she/her)

I am an assistant professor of Writing and Rhetoric at the University of Rhode Island where I direct the First Year Writing Program. My research generates critical theories and practices for transforming the teaching and assessing of writing in the classroom as well as in community literacy settings. My scholarship has been published in journals such as College English, Journal of Multimodal Rhetorics, Community Literacy Journal, Journal of Adolescent and Adult Literacy, and Education Sciences as well as in several edited collections. Her forthcoming book Failing Sideways: Queer Possibilities for Writing Assessment (co-authored with Nicole I. Caswell and William P. Banks) with UP Colorado/Utah State UP is expected in spring 2023.
