Deerfield is the journal of the Boston University Writing Program. Each issue publishes a sampling of the best undergraduate work composed by students in our courses. Our name is inspired by Deerfield Street, adjacent to the Writing Program building.

The Writing Program’s first journal, WR, captured exceptional student writing from 2008-2021.

In addition to highlighting exemplary student writing, our journal aims to provide instructors with a diverse and interesting collection of writing to use as a teaching resource.

We also compile a partial list of published student work that has been written for one of our courses.
