Deliberations: A Journal of First-Year Writing at Duke University
Deliberations is published annually, in the fall semester and showcases exemplary pieces of student writing from the Writing 101 courses at Duke. It features student-authored selections chosen from texts submitted by the previous year's first-year writing classes. Just as the Writing 101 courses at Duke range widely across topics and disciplinary perspectives, so do the student writings published in Deliberations. Information about the submission process can be found here.
The TWP sponsors an annual colloquium during Duke's Parents and Family Weekend following the release of the journal, at which the student-authors engage in a poster presentation and discussion of writing- and publication-related issues with the editors, faculty members, and other students who are in attendance.
