“What We’re About – Rebuilding Trust”

“Our traditional repositories of stories are under fire. There is a lack of trust and belief in education, law, the church, police, government, big business, and the media. Without this trust and belief, the social fabric becomes threadbare. New stories are needed, and they need to be created by those who understand how story does it work.

Our focus is to build understanding of the mechanisms behind how and why stories work. Using this understanding, we encourage responsible action and use of this understanding to conduct ethical narrative practices.

Our core focus is helping everyone explore how story works and how to work stories. We help participants decipher story codes, genres and patterns to discover hidden meaning. We teach how to seek out the ghosts of dead or forgotten stories in culture. We examine how public stories are scripted and shape our perceptions and decisions in unconscious ways. Raising the level of our narrative consciousness enlarges the domain of choice for us as citizens and consumers.

We give people a new frame of mind, not just a bag of tricks” (from the website).

“Young Scholars in Writing: Undergraduate Research in Writing and Rhetoric (YSW), a peer-reviewed journal for undergraduates, was founded in 2003 by Laurie Grobman and Candace Spigelman at Penn State Berks. YSW is the first international undergraduate research journal in rhetoric and writing studies and has garnered a national reputation. It has been lauded in College English; the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) Quarterly; and Undergraduate Research in English Studies. It is listed on the CUR website of undergraduate research journals, most of which are devoted to publishing research in the sciences. Articles and material from YSW have been selected for reprinting/publication in texts such as the 8th edition of The Essay Collection, edited by Lynn Z. Bloom.

Published annually, YSW circulates to 500 leading researchers and teachers of writing and rhetoric in the United States, Canada, Australia, and Europe. All articles are also accessible online”(from the website).

Public Writing: A Cultural Studies Journal for Undergraduate Writers provides a lively and provocative online forum for undergraduate writers who are engaged in critique of contemporary, historical, public ideas.

Student writers from across the humanities and social sciences and around the world are invited to submit to Public Writing. A Public Writingsubmission may work in any of the following fields or combine any of the following fields in an interdisciplinary manner: cultural theory, social theory, literary theory, cultural anthropology, linguistics, rhetoric studies, historical analysis, sociology, queer studies, disability studies, gender studies, philosophy or any other applicable field.

Public Writing‘s open-access format allows writers to be exposed to a larger readership. The open-access movement in scholarly publishing provides a model whose essence is unlimited availability and use. As such, authors themselves-not publishers-retain copyright.

Public Writing is being published with the support of both the George Washington University and Gelman Library. The editorial group consists of students, faculty, and librarians from a number of universities and colleges (from the website).

“Writers have a lot in common with the prospectors who swarmed California in the 19 th century-gold seekers set alight by visions of undiscovered riches. We literary treasure hunters work harder than any sane person should, chipping away at solid, unyielding rock or washing the gravel of parsimonious streambeds. It’s a solitary, demanding life, and most of the time, all we end up with are a few pinches of bright dust that threaten to slip through our fingers. But gold is gold, no matter its size. These small strikes keep us fed and our dreams of the mother lode alive.

Tiny Lights Publications honors the flash in the pan, those shining flecks of pure gold that often appear when we least expect them, when our hunger for bigger prizes is temporarily sated, when we relax and take the time to look at what’s really in our hands.

We are seeking pieces of writing that may have first appeared on a napkin, in a journal, or as a dream. 500 words or less, they are impossible to explain or categorize, and equally impossible to forget. These small gems will be posted quarterly on the Tiny Lights website”(from the website).
