Bessette touts this new journal as a “pedagogical resource” that attempts to “bring together, in one place, resources for professors across disciplines, but also an opportunity to give an outlet for this kinds of work as scholarship.”
Prompt is a refereed online journal that publishes academic writing assignments for undergraduates and graduate students. Our mission is to disseminate a mode of intellectual work that is too rarely circulated in public venues, and we hope to contribute to the scholarly study of writing assignments in the field of writing studies. We also believe that by publishing excellent and innovative writing assignments, we can create both a resource and a site of engagement for faculty who incorporate writing in their teaching.
