With the 2008 MLA Update edition, Writing Intensive continues to set the bar for contemporary handbooks. Writing and research have changed dramatically since the first hardcover handbooks appeared. Today's students don't rely on pens or typewriters: they use computers to write. They don't just do research: they find their way through a maze of online information. They don't just read print: they analyze visuals. They don't just come to class: they participate in an online learning community. These changes have put new demands on composition courses. With its focus on writing in today’s environment, integrated coverage of technology and visual rhetoric, hallmark coverage of writing across the curriculum, and pocket-sized format Writing Intensive has been designed to provide today’s students with a concise, convenient resource for writing in college and beyond.

A founding Executive Board member of the National Council of Writing Program Administrators (WPA), she has directed national institutes to improve the teaching of writing and to disseminate the principles of writing across the curriculum.

From 1989 to 2002, she directed the Composition Program at Queens College, where in 1996, she also initiated the college’s writing-across-the-curriculum program and the English Department’s involvement with the Epiphany Project and cyber-composition. She also worked with a group of CUNY colleagues to develop The Write Site, an online learning center, and more recently directed the CUNY Honors College at Queens College for three years.
