In addition to the WLN: A Journal of Writing Center Scholarship print journal, the editorial team works to create other resources for the community. This page provides access to those additional resources to the writing center community.
Elizabeth Kleinfeld, Sohui Lee, and Julie Prebel, WLN associate editors, are developing a new author support program, consisting of workshops, to help writers publish in WLN and contribute to the field of writing center studies. The workshop program aims to bring new voices into WLN by supporting authors in the early stages of their thinking and writing and will cover topics such as how to develop ideas for articles and how to contribute to ongoing writing center conversations.

Introduction to Publishing in WLN
In this first webinar in the WLN workshop series, the Associate Editors, Elizabeth Kleinfeld, Sohui Lee, and Julie Prebel, provide general information about publishing in WLN and WLN's submission guidelines, acceptance rates, and author resources housed on the WLN website. Along with this overview of the journal, the editors provide an overview and analysis of two major types of scholarly articles in WLN: research/theory-based articles and practitioner's narratives. Building on the article genres published in WLN, the editors then explore the more commonly addressed topics of articles in WLN, such as directing a writing center and tutor training. The workshop concludes with a review of manuscript requirements and strategies for authors to focus their work in a larger scholarly conversation. [CLICK TO VIEW]
