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.
"As a writing center director and a librarian, we are very pleased to introduce this special issue on collaboration between writing centers and libraries. Research and writing are both iterative, exploratory, and messy processes; they are intellectually rigorous yet often deeply personal and emotional. In an era of higher education marked by multimodal communication, open concept learning centers, and inclusive pedagogies, librarians and writing center directors across the country have been finding in one another kindred spirits."
