Wings, the annual collection of distinguished student essays, is in its 24th edition, and since many first-year writing classes now include multimodal forms of composition in the coursework, students are incorporating new media and visual arts as a means to further the communication and analysis of myriad texts and mediums.

The online component to Wings reflects current trends in multimodal literacy and displays our first-year writers apt engagement of their multifaceted compositional interests and skills.

In this Wings website, we highlight a variety of projects that creatively incorporate visual arts and rhetorical analysis alongside web portfolios and blogs.

24th edition coming soon. Meanwhile, check out our past editions of Wings.
