As graduate scholars, teaching assistants, and creative writers, we each bring unique perspectives to the contexts in which we write and the texts that we produce. Fortunately, the English discipline has shown an exceptional flexibility to incorporate our new perspectives while retaining a foothold on its firm foundations. Now, in this dynamic 21st Century climate, our discipline has shifted once again to include new genres, texts, and dialogues. This year, the Virginia Tech English Graduate Student Organization warmly invites you to share the fresh and innovative ways you represent our discipline. We welcome student selections concerning composition pedagogy, literary and rhetorical scholarship, and the artistic expressions of your perspective.
