WLN: A JOURNAL OF WRITING CENTER SCHOLARSHIP
Promoting the exchange of voices and ideas
in the one-to-one teaching of writing.
Formerly the Writing Lab Newsletter, WLN: A Journal of Writing Center Scholarship is a forum for exchanging ideas and information about writing centers in high schools, colleges, and universities.
Articles focus on challenges in tutoring theory and methodology, handling ESL issues, directing a writing center, training tutors, adding computers, designing and expanding centers, and using tutorial theory and pedagogy.
In addition to articles, issues contain conference announcements, book reviews, professional news, and a column by and for tutors. WLN is published bi-monthly from September to June.
