Call for Proposals, Fall 2022

Writing Centers / Tuesday, September 27th, 2022

Another Word, the award-winning writing center blog from the University of Wisconsin–Madison, is currently seeking proposals for blog posts to be published in 2023. We seek proposals from writing center administrators, professional staff, undergraduate and graduate tutors, and those invested in writing center studies on a broad range of topics related to administering, tutoring, training, and working in the writing center. 

We are particularly interested in, but not limited to, publishing posts related to these topics:

  • assessment 
  • community writing centers
  • diversity and inclusion
    • accessibility 
    • anti-racism
    • language diversity
    • LGBTQ+
  • HBCU writing centers 
  • histories of writing centers
  • online writing centers 
  • social justice
  • tutor training approaches
  • writing groups/retreats/camps
  • writing workshops and campus outreach

We welcome proposals of around 200 words addressing the topic of the post and its relevance to the larger writing center community. Successful proposals will (1) connect to broader conversations in the field, (2) offer a unique or underrepresented perspective or focus, and (3) clearly fit within the blog genre and our public audience.

If accepted, we will request a blog post that is approximately 1,000 to 1,500 words in length. In addition to the written text of the post, we will also ask authors to provide visual components as well. For all accepted posts, the editors will be happy to provide feedback, guidance, and mentoring along the way, as needed. 

Proposals are due November 30, 2022. Submit proposals through our Google Form. Notification of acceptance will be sent out in December 2022. Publication of accepted posts will begin in the spring of 2023. 

 If you have any questions, please contact the editors (Ellen Cecil-Lemkin and Jenny Conrad) at
