The GenEd Magazine (GEM) is an open-access publication space where the General Education English Program at Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU) showcases the winners of the General Education Writing Awards (GEWA) each year. Awarded in four categories, the GEWA honor the best and brightest submissions in each of the General Education English (GEE) courses at MTSU.
The GEM is organized by award year (e.g., 2020-2021) and award category (e.g., ENGL 1010). Under each award year, you’ll find four categories that often contain more than one GEWA submission:
- ENGL 1010: Expository Writing
- ENGL 1020: Research and Argumentative Writing
- ENGL 2020/2030: Sophomore-level Literary Analysis
- ENGL 1010, 1020, 2020, 2030: Multimodal Composition
Using the GEM
Students and teachers alike can use the GEM to showcase student example texts for each General Education English course.
