Rhetoric Matters is designed for use as an online textbook in first-year college and university composition programs. This third edition will take advantage of the multimodal features consistent with an ePub format. The editors seek submissions that address academic writing and critical thinking from a rhetorical perspective. In addition to chapters that explore processes associated with persuasive and well-researched academic writing, contributors should engage a student audience and include multimodal components (embedded images, videos, hyperlinks, etc.) to complement the text.

While chapter size ranges between 1,500 – 5,000 words, the editors appreciate organized and concise writing styles and visually-appealing presentations. The prospective chapter titles noted below do not represent Rhetoric Matters' complete table of contents, but do suggest the specific content areas associated with this call for papers. Those interested in submitting should prepare a brief (250-300 word) proposal that outlines the chapter's purpose and approach and submit this proposal to Jason Carabelli and Brogan Sullivan at rhetoricmatters@gmail.com by January 25, 2013. Inquiries associated with this call for papers should be sent to the same email.
