Abstract

Although the Framework for Success in Postsecondary Writing ostensibly focuses on success in college writing classrooms, this work also offers suggestions for success in other areas of life. Among other things, the eight habits of mind (curiosity, openness, engagement, responsibility, creativity, persistence, flexibility, and metacognition) described in the Framework can guide college and university faculty through the process of writing for publication. Behm and Roen describe each of the eight habits of mind and offer practical suggestions for using these habits as heuristics for making writing for publication more manageable.
