The essays published in Talking Back are selected by composition students and writing instructors at Colorado State University. Each semester, one assignment in the University's first-year composition course, COCC150: College Composition, is selected as the source of essays for Talking Back. Students in each section have the opportunity to nominate their own or their classmates' essays for inclusion in the new issue of Talking Back. Members of the editorial staff, in collaboration with composition instructors, decide which essays will be included in Talking Back.

For more information about submitting to Talking Back, please contact the Composition Program at Colorado State University care of Sue Russell, Composition Program Administrative Assistant, at (970) 491 1898 or
