This text explores the topic of collaborative writing in composition and is part of THE WADSWORTH SERIES IN COMPOSITION STUDIES, a new series for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students in Composition, is designed to contextualize the theory, history, and practice of the field within the particular subjects of study and practice that are unique to specialists in the discipline. Each book in the SERIES will introduce the discipline by examining one particular kind of work in which composition specialists engage: administration, teaching first-year composition, writing as it is taught across campus, and so forth. Although each contribution to the series will provide practical information, it will also present to students the related theoretical underpinnings of this practice, contextualizing the practice in the discipline using terminology and historical explanations that beginning students in the field need and can understand.
