We share effective writing pedagogies, explore what’s worked, refine what’s in-process, and theorize new turns (often from within bigger, more complexly challenging turns). Our focus is on teaching, and our goal is to support teachers, students, and scholars. We hope to be especially valuable as curators, identifying and radiating our sense of how pedagogies are evolving in light of various thrilling and provocative language trends, phenomena, and events.

    Dear Teaching of Writing forum members:

    MLA has tentatively approved a new forum for Literacy Studies under the Rhetoric and Writing Studies group, but it needs 35 MLA members to sign the petition by June 15 in order for the forum to make for the 2014 year. Currently, 8 people have signed the petition, which is located here: http://mla.hcommons.org/groups/prospective-forum-rcws-literacy-studies/forum/topic/petition-17/

    If the forum makes for this year, it will open up NEW speaking positions for the Vancouver conference in January. There are also executive committee positions available for this forum, simply for the volunteering. Get in on the ground floor of shaping writing studies at MLA by joining this group.

    Sincerely,
    Cheryl… just an interested member in seeing more Writing Studies represented at MLA.
