Angles: MIT’s best Introductory Writing work featured in new issue

All of the works published in Angles since its first edition in 2008 were written by students in the introductory writing courses at MIT. These courses, designated as CI-HW (Communications-Intensive Humanities Writing) subjects, bring together students who love to write, students who struggle with writing, students who thrive in seminar-style classes, and students who just want a chance to develop their English skills. These students prosper together and produce some remarkable work. Angles has provided them with a public outlet for that work. It also provides the CI-HW instructors with material that inspires and guides their current students.
