Calls for Papers - Graduate Writing Center
Calls for papers invite writers to submit manuscripts on a particular theme, subject, or question, typically for the purpose of placing different perspectives in conversation with one another, harnessing the power of many minds to tackle an important issue.
Interested in writing for one of these calls? The GWC supports students' publication efforts through pre-submission review, available via a coaching appointment, as well as through our publication workshops—"Writing for Online Outlets" and "Writing for Academic Journals."
