Latest 'Line by Line': 'Solid writing and research'

By Maureen Schlangen

The latest issue of Line by Line, UD’s peer-reviewed journal of beginning student writing, features a host of historiographies, plus a biographical research project about Tom Blackburn, a legend among UD’s men’s basketball coaches.

“The review board was impressed with the quality of the submissions,” says Professor Margaret Strain, Line by Line’s editor since 2018 and director of the writing program in the Department of English. “In this issue, you will find interdisciplinary essays that fuse English, history, philosophy and religious studies. The submissions demonstrate not only solid writing, but also strength in research content.”

Published each fall and spring semester, Line by Line accepts submissions from students in the first- and second-year writing program at the University of Dayton. Submissions for the spring 2020 issue (Volume 6, Issue 2) are now under review. The submission deadline for the fall 2020 issue (papers written in the spring 2020 term) is Friday May, 8.
