The Best of the Independent Rhetoric and Composition Journals 2014 represents the result of a nationwide conversation—beginning with journal editors, but expanding to teachers, scholars and workers across the discipline of Rhetoric and Composition—to select essays that showcase the innovative and transformative work now being published in the field's independent journals. Representing both print and digital journals in the field, the essays featured here explore issues ranging from classroom practice to writing in global and digital contexts, from writing workshops to community activism. Together, the essays provide readers with a rich understanding of the present and future direction of the field.

The anthology features work by the following authors and representing these journals: Adela Licona and J. Sarah Gonzalez (Community Literacy Journal) Hillery Glasby (Harlot), Victor Villanueva (Journal of Basic Writing), Kathleen Cassity (Journal of Teaching Writing), Fred Johnson (Kairos), Annette Vee (Literacy in Composition Studies), Kurt Spellmeyer (Pedagogy), David Rieder (Present Tense), Kendall Leon (Reflections), and Noreen Lape (The Writing Lab Newsletter).
