New CROW publication takes flight

The Youngstown State University English Department and Writing Center are announcing the release of a new publication featuring writing from students in YSU composition classes.

CROW, or Compose: a Review of Writing, will include nine published essays that were selected in a blind judging by English department faculty and Writing Center tutors. The essays represent a range of topics and assignments written in academic year 2011-12.

A celebration of the new publication is scheduled for 4 p.m., Monday, Oct. 29, at the Lemon Grove, 110 Federal Plaza West in Youngstown. Students will read from their work. Light refreshments and cake will be served. The event is free and open to the public, and is part of YSU’s festivities marking the National Day on Writing.

Students who are interested in submitting their work to CROW should contact their composition instructors.
