The 17 articles in this journal issue focus on writing and writing instruction. The articles discuss the following: (1) the NorthEast Texas, Texas Hill Country, and University of Arizona writing projects; (2) the necessity of dealing with truth in the writing class, not as a concept to be defined, but as an act that creates and recreates relationships between people; (3) using the "I-Search" process developed by Ken Macrorie as an alternative to the research paper; (4) teaching the research process through the use of minipapers; (5) writing as communication; (6) the use of "workshopping" (peer critiques) to teach composition; (7) teaching composition to Chicano students; (8) a sequence of writing exercises designed to introduce what the writing instructor wants the students to emphasize in their work; (9) a "speak-write" rehearsal technique for use with basic writing students; (10) the advantages of teaching the techniques of writing before allowing students to write; and (11) the "role of the period" in the composition process.
