For the Fall 2014 issue of BWe, we seek articles that investigate the uses and effects of community engagement in basic writing coursework. Our concept of "community engagement" is conceived very broadly, and includes concepts covered by umbrella terms such as service-learning, community based learning, and community literacy. In addition, we're interested in interdisciplinary collaborations from any perspective. How has your basic writing course worked with the library, the writing center, or other disciplines? We welcome submissions not only from basic writing faculty, but also faculty from other disciplines or from community partners who have collaborated with basic writing classes.

Article submissions will be accepted through December 28, 2013. BWe submissions will be responded to by March 1, 2014. If revision is requested, a final revision from a BWe author must be submitted by May 31, 2014.

BWe is a peer-reviewed online journal that welcomes both traditional and multi-modal texts. Submission guidelines for formatting print essays and webtexts appear on the BWe Web site: Please direct submissions and further questions to Tom Peele (
