Composing the Anthology: An Exercise in Patchwriting

Leary, Christopher
Series Edition: 
Vol. 1

Chapter Description

A composition teacher shares stories - from inside and outside of the classroom - concerning the dangers and possibilities inherent in “patchwriting.” The article presents examples of patchwriting drawn from poems, anthologies, and prose and argues that it is a useful but underappreciated writing strategy.
