Description: Breaking with the still-dominant process tradition in composition studies, post-process theory -- or at least the different incarnations of post-process theory discussed by the contributors represented in this collection of original essays -- endorses the fundamental idea that no codifiable or generalizable writing process exists or could exist. Post-process theorists hold that the practice of writing cannot be captured by a generalized process or a "big" theory.

Most post-process theorist hold three assumption about the act of writing: writing is public; writing is interpretive; and writing is situated. The first assumption is the commonsensical claim that writing constitutes a public interchange. By "interpretive act, " post process theorists generally mean something as broad "making sense of" and not exclusively the ability to move from one code to another. To interpret means more than merely to paraphrase; it means to enter in a relationship of understanding with other language users. And finally, because writing is a public act that requires interpretive interaction with others, writers always write from some position or some place. Writer are never nowhere; they are "situated."

Leading theorists and widely published scholars the field, contributors are Nancy Blyler, John Clifford Barbara Couture, Nancy C. DeJoy, Sidney I. Dobrin, Elizabeth Ervin, Helen Ewald, David Foster, Debra Journet, Thomas Kent, Gary A. Olson, Joseph Petragl George Pullman, David Russell, and John Schilb.
