SLW News

Mission Statement

Purpose

SLW News provides a forum for the exchange of views, research, and pedagogical practices related to second language writing. This forum creates opportunities for interest section members to advocate for students and other members, disseminate and promote research on second language writing, and encourage and support the teaching of writing to ESOL students at all levels.

Audience

SLW News is oriented to teachers, teacher-researchers, administrators, and writing specialists from across all nations, institutions, and grade levels, including traditionally underrepresented contexts (Pre-K through 12, two-year colleges, community programs, international K-12 schools, etc.). 

Vision

The ultimate vision for the newsletter is inclusiveness, given the breadth and depth of the constituents served. SLW News strives to achieve a balance in the following areas:

  • articles, brief reports, and announcements that address the concerns of those working in all educational settings
  • coverage of issues of concern to the various constituent audiences based on experience level and area of expertise or interest
  • theoretical and practical information about second language writing, teaching, research, and administration

Call for Submissions

SLW News is soliciting articles on second language writing theory, research, and pedagogy in all ESL/EFL settings. The newsletter welcomes articles that focus on
  • L2 writer and characteristics and text feature
  •  classroom materials and practices
  • placement and assessment issues
  • writing program administration
  • teacher development
  • other related areas.
SLW News encourages submissions related to any educational setting, especially traditionally underrepresented contexts (Pre-K through 12, two-year colleges, community programs, international K-12 schools, etc.). Given the newsletter's electronic format, authors are encouraged to include hyperlinks.
