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 2022 issue of the journal will also include a special section, guest edited by Cristyn L. Elder, entitled "Transforming WAC at 50: What, How, and for Whom?" For more information, view the full call for submissions.

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.
