This essay introduces the book: The New Work of Composing, which I co-edited with Dr. Debra Journet and Dr. Cheryl E. Ball. It was an enormous undertaking spanning three years of editing and production. And like almost all elements of the project, we wrote this introduction together. You can read the full introduction here: The New Work of the Book in Composition Studies: An Introduction. I also produced the video below as one of the introduction’s central elements.
