Composition Publications


We are proud of our excellent program publications here in Composition at SUNY New Paltz. Not only do they display strong writing, but they are also put to use in many classes. Below you can access our main publications, including New Voices, New Visions and Fresh Perspectives/ESL Exchanges.

New Voices, New Visions

This yearly collection of essays from the best writing in Composition I and II displays the variety of modes, genres, and situations that prompt students to show their skills. The text is also available in print form and is a required book for Composition classes because of the great examples it provides.
