Introduction to "From Silence to Noise: The Writing Center as Critical Exile"
Boquet, Elizabeth H.
Writing Center Journal, v30 n1 p66-68 2010
Nancy Welch integrates writing center work into the business of composition studies more seamlessly and skillfully than anyone. She takes as a given the writing center as a site for transformative literacy studies. She places writers, purposefully and respectfully, at the center of her work. Yet she doesn't, ironically, make a lot of noise about it, doesn't call one's attention to the fact that too few people make these moves, doesn't pat herself on the back for remembering. She just does. The result is work that is part literary journalism, part social critique, part tips-for-writers, part writer's journal, part theoretical exploration and explication. This particular article is but one of several such examples.
