Prompt Joins the Clearinghouse

  • Jul 5, 2023

The WAC Clearinghouse is pleased to announce that Prompt: A Journal of Academic Writing Assignments has joined the WAC Clearinghouse family of journals. Prompt is a biannual, refereed online journal that publishes academic writing assignments accompanied by reflective essays. It publishes assignments directed at undergraduate or graduate students and from all academic disciplines. Prompt is an open-access journal, with all articles freely available to all readers. Learn more about the journal on its Clearinghouse landing page.

The journal is actively soliciting submissions. If you have recently taught a noteworthy assignment, or if you know colleagues in other disciplines who are assigning innovative writing projects, please consider submitting a manuscript or passing this invitation on. Members of Prompt's editorial board have identified the following writing assignment topics/features as especially desirable: accessibility and universal design; high-impact reflective writing; engagement with generative AI; health communication; campus common read programs; gaming; financial literacy, and efforts to promote empathy.

Questions about the journal or about submission ideas can be sent to Co-Editors Kelly Kinney and Rick Fisher at
