Please see the attached call for a new editorial team for WPA: Writing Program Administration. The term of our current, amazing editorial team (Barb L’Eplattenier, Lisa Mastrangelo, and Sherry Rankins-Robertson) will expire in Spring 2017, so Rita Malenczyk is heading the search committee for a new editor (or editors) in her capacity as chair of the Publications Committee.
News & Announcements
For an edited collection, “Revisiting Peer Review: Critical Reflections on a Pedagogical Practice,” we seek chapter proposals that revisit the practice of peer review. Broadly defined as students responding to each other’s writing, peer review has been a foundational practice since its adoption from the process movement in the 1960s. Though a mainstay of the writing classroom, peer review still poses many unanswered questions for instructors.
Merit Awards ($100 each)
