Spring 2011 Issue of Praxis - From Triage to Outreach: Raising the Institutional Profile of Writing-Center Work

updated: 
Tuesday, December 7, 2010 - 11:50am
Praxis: A Writing Center Journal

For our Spring issue Praxis invites authors to reflect on the various ways writing centers serve student populations and wider communities. We are concerned that when writing centers are perceived only as writing hospitals, places that universities expect will "fix" student writing, they are more susceptible to budget cuts and funding crises. This makes it difficult for centers to sustain non-directive, non-evaluative consultation practices and to serve large, diverse communities of writers.
