Project Summary

Students in English 4025, Theory and Practice of Writing, collaborated with the Waterloo Writing Project (WWP) to understand composition theory as it is enacted and practiced at WWP, to put those theories in context of wider practices, and to then articulate the needs for WWP moving forward. This led to articulating the need for a sound studio to support podcasting and music mixing which Dr. Grant's current course also supports by securing costs for equipment, studio designs, potential funding sources, and continuing collaborative effort with WWP.
