This past summer and spring, students from across disciplines contributed to Rooted in Rhetoric, a journal that features a collection of masterfully articulated prose. The contributors were students taking Academic Writing as well as students in upper-level Rhetoric courses. The collection is broken down into nine sections that cover sensory descriptions, narratives, argumentative essays as well as constraints in writing exercises and analysis in linguistic landscapes and photographs to list a few.

The journal was edited by a quartet of students, Allison Friesen, Dylan Jones, Sarah Vaage and Chelsey Young.

“What is remarkable about this volume is that the student editing team did most of the work, without faculty help,” shared Dr. Jaqueline McLeod Rogers, Chair, Rhetoric, Writing, and Communications.

Young notes in the forward, that “writing means something different to every person. It evokes a variety of emotions and gives a chance for students to voice their opinions. More importantly, writing connects students.”

Copies can be obtained free of charge from the Department of Rhetoric, Writing, and Communications until supplies last.
