Composition English Department


Writing crystallizes thought and thought produces action. - Paul J. Meyer

The Southwestern College Composition Program is dedicated to
the expression of ideas through the medium of writing. While
honoring our diverse population and its equally diverse chorus
of voices, the Composition Program trains our students to focus
their expression to reach their audience in an intelligent and
cogent fashion, whether through expository writing, creative
non-fiction, creative fiction or poetry. While recognizing that
writing is a process, the program works to help students create
products that lead to real change and that effect the world
through a meaningful exchange of ideas.
