Comp Talesserves two aims--to collect good stories about teaching post-secondary composition, and to offer the kind of view and understanding of this profession that only oral anecdotes can provide. This text is a collection of the stories that college writing teachers tell and retell, stories that are actually told in the classroom, in the halls, over the tutor's table, in committee rooms, on street corners, over the kitchen table, etc. The book also contains reflections about the tales by the storytellers, and serious discussion about the role of story-telling in composition by the editors.
