Current Call for Papers

Our 2025 issue will feature articles that explore the theme of the 2024 ECWCA conference, "Leaping Ahead: Embracing the Gift of Time in Writing Centers." This issue encourages writers to engage with questions like: 

  • How can writing centers reflect on practices new and old? What impact have concepts like online tutoring, inclusive practices, evidence-based methods, and flexibility had on our centers?
  • How has technology helped us optimize our time for communication, scheduling, collaboration, and more? Additionally, how can we as Writing Center scholars find time to prioritize institutional and political change, and to give voice to diverse perspectives?
  • How can Writing Centers offer space for building supportive relationships that foster learning and student development? 
  • In what ways can Writing Centers seize opportunities, whether through innovative programming, fostering collaborations, or exploring new avenues for support and development? 

While anyone is welcome to submit, we strongly encourage submissions from those who attended or presented at the 2024 ECWCA conference in Dayton, Ohio. 

The issue will feature 3,000-8,000 word articles that grow from sessions at the conference. If you gave a presentation or sat on a panel--or even if you are just inspired by a session you attended at the conference--you are strongly encouraged to "write up" your work and send it for editorial and peer review. Please note: The 2025 issue could also include a Consultant Insight article, and a Conversation Shaper. Read more about submission types on our "Guidance for Writers" page.

Send submissions to us at Submissions should be formatted in APA Style (7th edition) and shared as a .docx or .rtf file. Please indicate the type of submission in the subject line of the email (e.g., Feature Article, Center Spotlight, Consultant Insight, Conversation Shaper). 

Priority will be given to submissions received by Monday, May 6th.
