Featured Responses

We’re delighted to present here on our website responses to the book from Sandra Jamieson and Susan Naomi Bernstein. In a few days, expect to see a response from Shevaun Watson, who provided the inspiration for the beginning of the book’s introduction. As contributors to the collection, these WPAs describe their process in thinking about their programs’ architecture, in using the templated chapter structure to consider their program structure.

We hope to feature one or two responses from chapter contributors each month for the next year. If you are a WPA (or perhaps hope to be one) and have not contributed to the collection, and you would like to write a response to be featured on our website, please feel free to contact us!
