Jeffrey Weinstock

Although the announced deadline for submissions for the _Reading Rocky
Horror: The Rocky Horror Picture Show and Popular Culture_ edited collection
project has passed, I will still consider additional submissions.

The initial cfp netted a fine group of essays, but one too narrowly focused
on issues of spectatorship or gender. I will still consider essays on those
topics, but am most interested in submissions that tackle the film, its
cult, and its influence from other perspectives.

If you are interested in developing an essay, please contact me at
<Jeffrey.Weinstock_at_cmich.edu> or (989) 774-3101.

UPDATE: Composing and Revising the Professional/Technical Writing Program (3/1/04; collection)

Composing and Revising the Professional/Technical Writing Program

New deadline: March 1, 2004

As Professional and Technical Writing grows at the undergraduate level from
a narrow pre-professional track to a discipline, complete with its own
undergraduate degree and certificate programs, faculty administrators often
seek grounded and detailed descriptions of how to picture, develop, promote
and sustain their programs. A strong need exists for a volume of reflective
discussion aimed at explaining the context and specifics of running a PWT
program, one grounded in specific institutional contexts and yet "portable"
to other sites and situations.
