About WCR

   Make an Impression

The Washington College Review is a journal that recognizes the best inquiry and expression in the liberal arts and sciences. We publish work that emerges from the four requirements of our college-wide writing program and is deserving of wider availability to readers in the Washington College community and beyond. Complementing the writing, we also publish a variety of images from students working in Studio Art. 


Critical Inquiry. W1: Writing the First Year Seminars.

Rhetorical Questions. W2: Writing from the variety of W2 courses.

Writing Across the Disciplines. W3: Work from Discipline-Based approaches to Writing in the Majors.

Capstone Experiences. W4: Research from Senior Capstone Projects
