Publishing Student Writing: An In-Class Model.
Wess, Robert C.
After reviewing the benefits of the in-class publishing of student writing, this paper describes such a college freshman publication and the process of producing it. The reasons presented in support of publishing student work include the observations that most students have no other opportunity to publish; that the composition classroom should be a workshop where students learn revision, proofreading, and preparing a manuscript for close scrutiny; and that the relative immediacy of such a publication generally intensifies the writing efforts of unpublished students. Described in the process of producing the publication are marketing the project to the students, arranging financing, collecting and selecting manuscripts, organizing the contents, and distributing the complete booklet.
