Writers’ Studio is an innovative model for first-year composition at Arizona State University. We offer an online version of Writers’ Studio for ASU Online and iCourse students and f2f version on the Downtown Phoenix campus. Based on award-winning models for composition from schools across the country, F2F Writers’ Studio and Writers’ Studio Online is bringing together a diverse community of award-winning faculty, staff, writing fellows, and students to rethink how writing is taught and learned. Together this highly collaborative team develops research and writing projects that engage “real-world” civic, academic, and professional issues through project-based learning in a collaborative environment.
