Clearinghouse Books Series

Perspectives on Writing

The Perspectives on Writing series addresses writing studies in a broad sense. Consistent with the wide-ranging approaches characteristic of teaching and scholarship in writing across the curriculum, the series presents works that take divergent perspectives on working as a writer, teaching writing, administering writing programs, and studying writing in its various forms.

International Exchanges on the Study of Writing

The International Exchanges on the Study of Writing Series publishes book-length manuscripts that address worldwide perspectives on writing, writers, teaching with writing, and scholarly writing practices, specifically those that draw on scholarship across national and disciplinary borders to challenge parochial understandings of all of the above. 

Across the Disciplines Books

The Across the Disciplines Books series is closely tied to published themed issues of the online, open access, peer reviewed journal Across the Disciplines (ATD). Building on the special issues, the volumes in this series provide an expanded, richer, and more comprehensive treatment of the topics addressed in the journal.

Practices & Possibilities

The books in this series explore issues and ideas of interest to writers, teachers, researchers, and theorists who share an interest in improving existing practices and exploring new possibilities. 

Reference Guides to Rhetoric and Composition

The books in this series, edited by Charles Bazerman, Anis Bawarshi, and Mary Jo Reiff, and published jointly with Parlor Press, provide compact, comprehensive and convenient surveys of what has been learned through research and practice as composition has emerged as an academic discipline over the last half century.
