A new set of "Fresh Assumptions"

Assumption College’s English Department has announced the publication of the seventh volume of Fresh Assumptions. The essays included in the collection are all drawn from works written by first-year students Assumption College students for their English Composition course. Nearly three dozen entries were submitted for consideration this year, and 12 were selected for inclusion by the anthology’s editors. This year’s edition features articles ranging from personal narratives to literary criticism.

Along with helping to spotlight some of the best work produced by Assumption’s young writers, the journal provides a useful teaching tool for future student: providing “model” essays for future study.

Fresh Assumptions is a journal that celebrates original, old fashioned essay writing.In a world where Tweeting and texting have become the communication norm, we are thrilled to be publishing thoughtful, well-crafted expository essays written by our freshmen students,” notes editor Mary Didomenico, a visiting assistant professor of English at Assumption. “Good essays should be discussed, savored, and appreciated.”
