Best of the Journals in Rhetoric and Composition 2017 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.

Rademaekers (Across the Disciplines), Lucía Durá, Consuelo Salas, William Medina-Jerez, and Virginia Hill (Community Literacy Journal), Derek Mueller (Composition Forum), Shawna Shapiro, Michelle Cox, Gail Shuck, and Emily Simnitt (Composition Studies), Sarah Orem and Neil Simpkins (Enculturation), Tal Fitzpatrick and Katve-Kaisa Kontturi (Harlot: A Revealing Look at the Arts of Persuasion), Dan Melzer (Journal of Basic Writing), Ryan T. Miller, Thomas D. Mitchell, and Silvia Pessoa (Journal of Second Language Writing), Peter C. Bakke and Jim A. Kuypers (KB Journal), Christa J. Olson and Madison Nancy Reddy (Literacy in Composition Studies), Robin Reames (Philosophy and Rhetoric), andré carrington (Present Tense), Michelle Hall Kells (Reflections), Marie E.
