She has served as President of the Coalition of Women Scholars in the History of Rhetoric and Composition, and is a member of the Conference on College Composition and Communication (CCCC) Executive Committee, Chair of the Modern Language Association (MLA) Division on the History and Theory of Rhetoric and Composition, and a member of the MLA Delegate Assembly. Glenn's teaching and scholarship have earned her three university teaching awards. She has recently served as Chair of the Conference on College Composition and Communication, the largest organization of writing and rhetoric teachers in the world.

Review:

"I would describe the Harbrace as a handbook that seems more rhetorically sophisticated and in-depth than other handbooks I have used."

"How to describe the new Harbrace? Old Professor Hodges would roll over in his grave! It's still comprehensive, but now it's hip, too. The perfect blend of advice about sentence construction and e-composing."

"If I were to describe the Writer's Harbrace to a colleague, I would say that it takes an explicitly rhetorical approach to writing in different academic situations. I would say that the grammar and diction chapters use cutting-edge approaches to teaching students how to identify and correct grammar problems and enhance their prose style. I was happy to see that the rhetorical approach to teaching grammar and style I have been using for the past two years (especially) is now "standardized" in a handbook."
