Focus: This issue will examine effective leadership practices in college and university writing programs, including first-year composition, basic writing, and ELL/ESL writing programs; undergraduate and graduate writing degree programs, including rhetoric and composition; writing across the curriculum/writing in the disciplines; writing center/writing fellows; service learning; and other programs focused on writing instruction. Submissions should thoughtfully consider how writing specialists fill formal and/or informal leadership roles (both administrative and not) in classrooms and/or programs, with particular attention being given to essays that utilize leadership research/theory. “Leadership in Writing Programs” encourages submissions that address intersections and disconnects between administrative work and leadership, the (lack of) leadership preparation, and how leadership practices affect program growth, development, assessment, and sustainability.

Who May Submit: Submissions are welcome from instructors, graduate students, researchers, scholars, administrators, staff, adjuncts and all others working in college and university writing programs, including first-year composition, basic writing, and ELL/ESL writing programs; undergraduate and graduate writing degree programs, including rhetoric and composition; writing across the curriculum/writing in the disciplines; writing center/writing fellows; service learning; and other programs focused on writing instruction.
