The Best Text Collection is one way the Writing Program (WP) works to highlight and circulate texts created by University of Massachusetts Amherst (UMass Amherst) students for writing courses at all undergraduate levels. Texts are reviewed and prepared for publication by graduate writing instructors, further deepening the WP focus on mentoring teachers of writing on inclusive pedagogical practices by extending these practices to graduate level instruction.

Published annually, each issue presents projects created for any Writing, Identity, & Power (ENGLWRIT111), College Writing (ENGLWRIT112/112H), or Junior Year Writing courses written by current UMass Amherst undergraduate students.
