First page of Writing Programs' Writing Notes Fall 2017 newsletter

Writing takes place: Writing Programs in Ross-Blakley Hall


Brandon Whiting

This issue of Writing Notes, ASU Writing Programs' newsletter, features stories and notes about our new space. As you may know, the Department of English recently moved from its long-time home in the Language and Literature Building across the ASU campus to Ross-Blakley Hall. In the words of Writing Programs Director Shirley Rose, the transition brought "many opportunities for re-thinking the kinds of spaces that best suit the in-person face-to-face work [we] do with student writers."

We hope you enjoy this issue of Writing Notes.

If you would like to contribute creatively to the Spring 2018 edition of Writing Notes, please send an email with a 50-word abstract to Sarah Snyder at by February 15, 2018.  Authors will be notified by February 27th, and submissions will be due March 31 for an April publication date.

Although all proposals and topics will be considered, Writing Notes would like to feature pieces concerning: 

  • the Spring 2018 Writing Programs' Convocation (reactions, reflections)
  • the new RBH space and how Writing Programs has adapted to it (or how the space has adapted to you)
  • teaching or research innovations
  • reflections on teaching throughout different stages of your program (e.g. first year/practicum; oral/written exams; dissertating)
  • reflections on what it means to be a Lecturer or Instructor in the ever-changing world of ASU and the 21st century.

As always, there will be a "Kudos" section for which you are welcome to send your accomplishments, both professional and personal.
