Readings about Writing is a quarterly journal of work from students in UWP1 and UWP1Y, the University Writing Program’s first-year composition courses at UC Davis. The journal reflects the first-year composition program’s “Writing about Writing” approach. Student compositions focus on literacy topics, including literacy narratives, advice for college reading and writing, and primary and secondary research on literacies. Students in UWP1 read and compose not only in print but also in visual, oral, and digital modes to help them prepare for 21st century literacies.
