After a long hiatus, the journal of GACCEA will return in May as an online journal. "Notes" will offer pedagogically directed scholarship on all topics relevant to teaching college-level English, in a fresh multimodal online format. We invite you to participate in shaping this exciting publication by contributing your scholarship. The journal will come online in early May of this year. We welcome submissions for possible publication in this journal—both scholarly and reflective.

We are looking for four types of contributions:

Scholarly articles related to a wide variety of topics within the English discipline, with a pedagogical focus (up to 6000 words) – We welcome articles on many subjects, but in keeping with the journal's pedagogical focus, we will ask you to devote some space in the introduction and second half of the article to pedagogical applications of your scholarship. We also welcome articles that are specifically pedagogical or within the scholarship of teaching and learning.

Shorter reflective or opinion pieces (500 words) – These pieces should be take a position on some issue related to the teaching of English in the college classroom. They should be written in a persuasive or reflective mode. These contributions need not be bound to traditional forms and can be created in a variety of constructive formats, including poetry, prose, speech, image, song, etc. Accepted submissions will be interspersed within the essays to weave a narrative from the evolving scope of curriculum studies. Submissions in this form should reflect the complexity of conversations about tension, risk, anxiety, hope and social action we currently find in our Discipline.

Short "classroom tips" (500 words) – These pieces should discuss some focused aspect of pedagogy—the use of a new technology, for example, or a new course design, or an assignment or assignment sequence. The goal is to be practical. These pieces should be written for the instructor who wants to implement your idea.

Visual/audio presentation – Send any interesting graphic, photo, diagram, map, illustration, video, audio file, or visual meme that is related to your work along with a brief description of why it is important to the teaching of English.
