Five UCF First-Year Composition Students' Writing Featured in New Issue of Stylus

December 2016

photoCongratulations to UCF students Kristina Abicca, Dana Mikkelsen, Taylor Rayfield, Amber Steward, and Shravan Yandra, all of whom have had work they produced in their first-year composition classes published in the latest issue of Stylus: A Journal of First-Year Writing. The subjects of their individual articles vary—from considerations of writing processes to the effects of multilingualism on note-taking and knowledge-making to the rhetoric behind design choices made on medical resource websites—but all share a sense that writing can be used to meaningfully inquire into the world around us. "Their work is truly outstanding," said Stylus faculty editor, Matthew Bryan, "and represents our first-year writing program very well."
