Many thanks to the Kairos review team, especially Praxis editor Christine Tulley, who provided invaluable feedback throughout this process. We extend our gratitude to Angela Clark-Oates, Writers' Studio Course Manager, for permission to include in our article the Writers' Studio video that she developed. We are indebted to Duane Roen and our colleagues at Arizona State University who entrusted us in the redesign of first-year composition for online learners and supported us through the development of the Writers' Studio. We carry heartfelt appreciation for students who took risks through multimodal composition and trusted we would not lead them astray.
