Across five issues per year and through numerous online resources, WLN: A Journal of Writing Center Scholarship promotes exchanges on challenges in tutoring theory and methodology, handling ESL issues, directing a writing center, training tutors, designing and expanding centers, and using tutorial theory and pedagogy.
"In 2016 we developed a call for proposals for a special issue of WLN on the topic of 'What We Believe and Why: Educating Writing Tutors' and hoped for a good response. We received more than fifty proposals, which resulted in our first special issue (vol. 42, no. 1-2), our online book, How We Teach Writing Tutors: A WLN Digital Edited Collection, and now this second special issue."
