Here at Writing Waves Journal, we provide you with multiple examples of writing composed by students like you! We include diverse student voices to create an exciting learning experience you can not only learn from, but also relate to. Over the course of the semester, you’ll be asked to think critically in response to the diverse genres, rhetorical situations, and perspectives you encounter at the university and beyond. In this journal, we reflect these goals by publishing student work that explores a myriad of genres. These include analysis, research driven essays, and narratives. These pieces can inform the writing that you do in your course, and act as examples of successful student pieces. We strived to make writing fun and interesting, and hope you’ll write the wave along with us. Writing Waves.
