This essay discusses the impact of using serialized reading texts, like magazines, in writing instruction. It explains an advanced expository writing course that uses the New Yorker magazine as a frame for addressing the significance of contemporaneity and performance in student writing. Ultimately, the magazine remediates between traditional readers and new media approaches.
