Titled after Composition Studies’ original name (Freshman English Newsletter), we envision FEN Blog as making space for writing teachers to bring their research and experience to bear on current issues, helping colleagues think about how ongoing exigencies (re)shape our pedagogy, assessment, and theory of teaching writing. Featuring work by and for those who are on the front lines of writing education, FEN Blog is meant to spark conversation about the ways that writing and literacy education meets the needs of the moment and contributes to pluralistic, democratic public discourse, sustaining students’ diverse linguistic and literate capacities. FEN Blog aims to cultivate academic yet accessible dialogue that grows out of the work of contingent scholars, graduate students, early career researchers, and others engaged in composition studies. We particularly welcome pieces from teacher-scholars from nondominant communities.
