The WAC Journal has a rich legacy and is the longest-running journal devoted to writing across the curriculum in the field. It is published by Parlor Press, the WAC Clearinghouse, and Clemson University, which is recognized as a national leader in writing and multimedia across the curriculum and digital creativity. The WAC Journal is a “double-anonymous” peer-reviewed journal, published annually. We aim to publish work that explores the multiple theoretical paradigms, diverse approaches, and potential intersections between writing across the curriculum and topics of feminism, technology, and inclusion. We welcome submissions from all WAC scholars. 

The WAC Journal endorses the WAC Clearinghouse's "Advice for Reviewers":

We strongly encourage all reviewers to follow these best practices to ensure constructive and collegial feedback to all those who submit their work for publication consideration.

The WAC Journal is available in print and online versions. To obtain a printed volume of the journal, please view our subscription information. To view the online version, please follow the links below.

Screen readers will not be able to determine heading levels and other information that would ease the reading process.
