"I welcome this valuable and timely resource for scholars and teachers in the field of rhetoric and writing who want to more fully understand the issues surrounding service-learning, civic engagement, and public/community-based writing. This volume outlines essential foundational knowledge and presents stories from a wide range of classrooms/community partnerships. In the end, this text will enable teachers to offer students additional opportunities to reflect on and engage in their communities."
— James Dubinsky, Virginia Tech  

"Writing and Community Engagement captures the energy and scholarly inquiry which is reshaping the work of composition/rhetoric. More than just a collection of established articles, this book provides a road map for those attempting to navigate their professional careers with a sense of social responsibility and justice."
— Steve Parks, Syracuse University
