Writing and Community Engagement: A Critical Sourcebook collects key research on the theory and practice of community-based writing. Selections from community projects are also included to help connect scholarly and pedagogical work. Chapters address writing in communities, ethics, community engagement, service-learning, the rhetoric of civic writing, and practical pedagogy.
"Any teacher whose students are engaged in community-based writing, and any scholar who investigates service-learning or community literacies, will be grateful for this book."
— Nora Bacon, University of Nebraska at Omaha
