Call for Proposals: Write for Another Word

Writing Centers / Tuesday, October 26th, 2021

Another Word, the award-winning writing center blog from the University of Wisconsin–Madison, is currently seeking proposals for blog posts. 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:

  • anti-racism
  • disability and chronic illness
  • accessibility 
  • multilingual writers and tutors 
  • LGBTQ+ 
  • social justice
  • interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary work 

We welcome proposals of around 200 words addressing the topic of the post and its relevance to the larger writing center community. 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. For all accepted posts, the editors will be happy to provide feedback and guidance along the way, as needed. 

Proposals are due Friday, November 26, 2021. Notification of acceptance will be sent out in December 2021. Publication of accepted posts will begin in the spring of 2022.

If you’re interested in submitting a proposal for 2022, please see our post Call for Proposals, Fall 2022.
