This year’s issue of EP collects eight exemplary essays written by Fordham Lincoln Center students in sections of Composition and Rhetoric I, II, or Texts and Contexts. Congratulations are also due to the wonderful professors and instructors—Andrew Albin, Julia Barclay-Morton, Elisabeth Frost, Boyda Johnstone, Christy Pottroff, and Alexis Quinlan—who taught the courses from which this great work emerged.
EP 11.0 marks the first year that the journal will be available in both printed and electronic forms, enabling even more readers to access, read, and enjoy this exceptional collection of essays. In addition to ushering EP into the digital age, the editors have instituted the publication’s first blind peer review process. Modeled upon the process used at Rhētorikós, each submission received anonymous consideration from two members of a peer review board comprised of ten English graduate students at the Rose Hill and Lincoln Center campuses.
With an acceptance rate of just 23 percent, EP 11.0 may be the most rigorous issue to date.
The co-editors, Will Fenton and Matt Lillo, join Professor Anne Fernald in hoping you will enjoy this issue and use it in your classes. EP 11.0 is available today in print at Lincoln Center in Lowenstein 924 and online via English Connect. Thank you for reading this issue and nominating your students’ writing for the next! And a special thanks to the EP peer review board: Rebecca Aberle, Ruth Adams, Julia Cosacchi, Will Cronin, Jessica D’Onofrio, Bronwen Durocher, Callie Gallo, Laura Radford, Patrick Skea, and Ian Sullivan.
