plain china

plain china is a national literary anthology that showcases the best undergraduate writing from across the country, while providing a venue for top-notch artwork as well. The work of undergraduates has often been featured only in their respective institutions; with this anthology, we want to honor and connect young writers and artists, and to create a collective narrative reflective of and relevant to the undergraduate writing experience. It is the first online compilation of undergraduate work at such a scale and on a national level.

Students work on plain china enrolling in the Plain China practicum, an online 2-credit course offered every Fall term.

The Faculty Coordinator of plain china is Professor Becky Godwin, who can be reached at
