CFP: The Journal of Second Language Writing

The Journal of Second Language Writing is now accepting proposals for a 2019 special topic issue from interested guest editors. We seek proposals that address a theme that will be of interest and relevance to the journal’s international readership of L2 writing scholars. We are especially interested in topics that will highlight work in underrepresented contexts and areas of inquiry in second language writing. Articles to be included in the issue may be invited by the guest editors, or the guest editors may put out an open call for papers for the issue. Additional details can be found in the attachment. The deadline for proposals is June 1, 2017.

Please feel free to email JSLW Co-Editors Guillaume Gentil (jslw@carleton.ca) or Icy Lee (jslw@cuhk.edu.hk) with any questions you might have.
