Writing and Rhetoric Program
Innis College’s Writing and Rhetoric Program offers a diverse array of courses that explore the worlds of oral, written, and online discourse.
Our Rhetoric courses investigate the discipline’s core ideas, history, contact with other disciplines, applications, and metamorphoses across media platforms.
Our Writing courses teach students how to write well in the modes, genres, and styles appropriate to particular disciplinary, institutional, and creative contexts.
The Spectatorial submissions are open until November 19th! We accept creative work, academic writing, graphic fiction, and visual art under the speculative genre. This can include science fiction, fantasy, horror, dystopia, romance, etc. Our hope is to highlight the importance of carefully crafted speculative works within the literary scene. If you would like to be published in our journal then please review our submissions guidelines.
The Writing and Rhetoric program wishes to congratulate Innis College alum, Arvin Tavakkoli, for placing 7th among thousands of submissions in the 90th Annual Writer’s Digest Writing Competition. Arvin’s short story titled “All the Colours of the Sunset”, originally composed for Writing and Rhetoric course WRR311Y1 Seminar in Creative Writing with Professor Sharon English, was chosen as one of the top ten submissions to the category “Mainstream / Literary Short Fiction”. Congratulations, Arvin!
