Praxis: A Writing Center Journal welcomes submissions on a wide range of topics related to writing centers for its Spring 2014 issue. We also encourage submissions on the issue’s theme: Connected Writing. Writing center practitioners often must negotiate across various technologies, languages, and academic disciplines in order to serve students, making the labor of connecting central to writing center theory and practice.

“Connection” is a capacious term that could encompass interpersonal relationality as well as the practical matters of Internet connectivity – both issues that become important to writing centers with the increasing emphasis on multiliteracy in writing center scholarship. How do these various senses of the word connection come together in writing center theory and practice?

Articles might explore topics including:

· Technological connections, networking, and Internet accessibility

· Inter-disciplinary methods

· Writing centers connecting with other writing centers

· Face-to-face meetings between students and tutors

· Intersecting issues of race, gender, sexuality, and ability

· Communicating across multiple languages and literacies

· Movement between various spaces, places, and locations

Recommended article length is 3000 to 4000 words.

Articles should conform to MLA style. Please submit articles online at praxis.uwc.utexas.edu. For further information about submitting an article, the journal’s blind review process, or to contact the managing editors, please email praxisuwc@gmail.com.

The deadline for spring issue consideration is January 15, 2014.
