Chris Leary

I am a Ph.D. candidate in the English Department. My focus is on the field of composition and rhetoric. Currently, my research involves student and professional editing of anthologies, both online and in print. I have an article entitled “Composing the Anthology” in Writing Spaces (forthcoming January 2010) that is an account of my work with students at Queensborough Community College.

In addition to attending CUNY, I work full-time as the Associate Director of the St. John’s University Writing Center. At the Writing Center, students from every imaginable discipline collaborate on all sorts of writing projects, at every stage of the process, from project conceptualization to final editing.
