The oldest independent periodical in its
field, Composition Studies is an academic journal dedicated
to the range of professional practices associated with rhetoric
and composition: teaching college writing; theorizing rhetoric
and composing; administering writing related programs; preparing
the field's future teacher-scholars. All perspectives and topics
of general interest to the profession are welcome.>>
In publication since March 1972, Composition Studies
holds the distinction of being the oldest independent journal
in its field. Originally published under the name Freshman
English News, the journal began as an alternative to other
affiliated scholarly publications such as College Composition
and Communication and College English. Director
of TCU's writing program, Gary Tate, founded the newsletter as
a forum for teachers.>>
