Contribute to the Journal Open Words: Access and English Studies

Hi All,

I am an editorial board member for this journal, and I hope some of you might consider contributing. The journal is now very actively looking for articles! Stay tuned, as I'll also be guest-editing a special issue of the journal on Disability Studies in the coming year.

CFP: Manuscripts for the Journal Open Words

Open Words: Access and English Studies is a refereed journal dedicated to publishing articles focusing on pedagogical, political, and professional issues related to teaching composition, reading, ESL, creative writing, and literature to open admissions, at-risk, and non-mainstream student populations. We seek critical work in areas such as instructional strategies, cultural studies, critical theory, classroom materials, technological innovation, institutional critique, student services, program development, etc., that assist educators, administrators, and student support personnel who work with students in pedagogically difficult settings. Articles should consider the particularities of these settings—issues, for example, surrounding the identifier of “open access,” intersections of race, class, gender, disability, and sexuality, regional and cultural differences, and the range of competencies students bring with them to classrooms—in light of the aims of English studies to empower students’ critical and creative endeavors.

If you are interested in submitting a manuscript, please send an electronic copy to both John Tassoni at tassonjp@muohio.eduand William Thelin at
