book is a collection of essays by a number of scholar-practitioners in the
field, and explores short-lived university/community writing projects in an
effort to rethink the long-held “gold standard” of long-term sustainability in
community writing work. The volume’s contributors examine their own efforts in
order to provide alternate models for understanding, assessing, and enacting
university/community writing projects that, for a range of reasons, fall
outside of traditional practice.
