Writing Center Journal

WCJ is the flagship journal of the International Writing Centers Association (IWCA). This academic peer-reviewed journal for scholarship intersects with writing centers in a wide-range of institutional contexts. WCJ values innovative research from a diversity of theoretical and methodological approaches, and it seeks to publish emerging voices that challenge the status quo and that represent the plurality of identities and languaging that happens in and around writing centers, whether at research universities and colleges, 2-year colleges, HBCUs, HSIs, tribal colleges, trade and professional schools, or community-based literacy and writing projects.
