The Best of the Journals in Rhetoric and Composition 2015–2016 represents the result of a nationwide conversation—beginning with journal editors, but expanding to teachers, scholars and workers across the discipline of Rhetoric and Composition—to select essays that showcase the innovative and transformative work now being published in the field's independent journals. Representing both print and digital journals in the field, the essays featured here explore issues ranging from classroom practice to writing in global and digital contexts, from writing workshops to community activism. Together, the essays provide readers with a rich understanding of the present and future direction of the field.
The anthology features work by the following authors and representing these journals: Cori Brewster (Basic Writing eJournal), Genesea M. Carter (Journal of Teaching Writing), Annika Konrad (Reflections), Christina Matthiesen (Community Literacy Journal), Laura Gonzales (Composition Forum), Mayumi Fujioka (Journal of Second Language Writing), Pamela Bromley, Eliana Schonberg, and Kara Northway (WLN: A Journal of Writing Center Scholarship), Erika Amethyst Szymanski (Across the Disciplines), Lisa Lebduska (Harlot), Jonathan W. Stone (Enculturation), Matthew B. Cox and Michael J. Faris (Present Tense), Aja Y. Martinez (Composition Studies), and Carmen Kynard (Literacy in Composition Studies).
