Writing Spaces: Readings on Writing

Series Editors: Dana Lynn Driscoll, Mary Stewart, and Matthew Vetter, Indiana University of Pennsylvania

The books in this independent series, which is co-published jointly with Parlor Press, present peer-reviewed collections of essays—all composed by teachers for students—with each volume freely available for download under a Creative Commons license. The Writing Spaces' mission is to build a library of quality open access texts for the writing classroom as an alternative to costly textbooks, and the series editors have partnered with the WAC Clearinghouse and Parlor Press to provide wide access to the books. Each series volume contains engaging essays from different writing teachers in the field and explores important topics about writing in a manner and style accessible both to teachers and students. While the first volumes focus on instructional texts for first year composition, future editions may feature texts for writing in the disciplines and professional writing classrooms. Additionally, each collection will be supplemented by classroom activities and exercises which illustrate and implement the ideas discussed by the authors. The founding editors for this series and the editors of its first two volumes are Charles Lowe, Grand Valley State University, and Pavel Zemliansky, James Madison University.
