Every year, TCU's Winifred Bryan Horner Rhetoric Society gathers around the end of the semester to share a meal and work in "silent solidarity" on their projects together. Although meeting for a short period of time, students and faculty alike find the scheduled work session to be incredibly beneficial to their composing processes. Moreover, the event gives students small glimpses into the processes of their professors, helping them to recognize that, from graduate student to endowed chair, we all have to devote time to thinking, drafting, and revising.
At this final WBH meeting, students and faculty engaged in such projects as drawing a new panel for their comics dissertation, grading student assignments, and working on final projects and papers for publication. As all worked, it was amazing to consider the wide range of activities that go on in TCU's rhetoric and composition program.
The Winifred Bryan Horner Rhetoric Society serves as the student chapter of the Rhetoric Society of America at Texas Christian University. In addition to sponsoring events that further rhetorical scholarship at TCU, the WBH Rhetoric Society also supports the Winifred Bryan Horner Reading Library in the TCU Graduate Instructor office. The WBH Rhetoric Society was founded by TCU English graduate students in 2011.
