CFP: Fall 2007 Issue of Praxis – Diversity in the Writing Center

Praxis: A Writing Center Journal welcomes submissions for its Fall 2007
issue. We especially encourage submissions on this issue's theme:
Diversity in the Writing Center. Articles on this topic may deal with the
numerous ways in which writing centers foster and accommodate the
diversity of their tutees and tutors. We invite contributors to interpret
the theme broadly; however, some possible applications include

• Issues of power and authority relating to race, gender, class, etc. in
• Tutoring ESL students
• Questions of dialect in tutees' writing
• Accommodating socioeconomic differences in the writing center (e.g.,
flexible scheduling for students who work fulltime)
• Consultations conducted in non-English languages
• International encounters in the writing center

Submission guidelines:

Recommended article length is 1000 to 2000 words. Articles should conform
to MLA style. Send submissions as a Word document e-mail attachment to
Jeremy Dean and James Jesson at Also include the
writer's name, e-mail address, phone number, and affiliation. Because
Praxis is a Web-based journal, please do not send paper; we do not have
the resources to transcribe printed manuscripts. Images should be
formatted as jpeg files and sent as attachments.
