WriteClick is an online journal dedicated to publishing work by first and second year writing students enrolled in R_C courses at Appalachian State University. Instructors may nominate student writing that represents a range of genres, from videos to graphic images to digital texts to traditional academic essays. We are looking for works that are substantive, imaginative, carefully composed, designed, and edited.
