FYHC: The Journal of First-year Honors Composition http://fyhc.info, a peer-reviewed academic journal, is pleased to announce its re-launch. FYHC was inaugurated in spring 2006 with the intention of being the national forum for collegial discussion of issues related to first-year honors composition.

FYHC is now accepting submissions for our second issue, to be published in summer 2011. We solicit contributions from FYHC student-writers, teachers, course directors, writing program administrators, and interested others. Submissions for issue two are due by December 15, 2010.

The journal is divided into six sections, which are:

Pedagogy: This section is for essays that consider the pedagogical debates surrounding FYHC.

History: This section is for historical overviews of FYHC and case studies of particular FYHC programs.

Student Works: We welcome essays that are written about FYHC by students and essays that are written for FYHC classes by students. Collaborative teacher-student essays are also welcome. We are especially interested in discussions of or representative pieces of best practices for FYHC.

WPA Views: This section is a forum for Writing Program Administrators, Course Directors, Department Chairs, College Deans, University Presidents, High School Principals, etc., to describe the FHYC classes on their campuses and/or to explore key issues concerning FYHC.

Reviews: This section provides a space to review texts about FYHC or to review texts that have applications or implications for FYHC.

Editorials: For those who have political, pedagogical, and/or theoretical concerns about FYHC but who want to work in a less formal setting than a full peer-reviewed article, we have an editorial section as well.

Submission guidelines can be found at http://fyhc.info/guidelines.asp.
