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. The journal supports a variety of diverse approaches to and discussions of writing across the curriculum. We publish submissions from all WAC scholars that focus on writing across the curriculum, including topics on WAC program strategies, techniques, and applications; emergent technologies and digital literacies across the curriculum; antiracist pedagogies; feminist rhetorics across the curriculum; intersectional contexts of feminism; international WAC initiatives; and writing in the disciplines at the college level.
Digital copies of the journal are simultaneously published at The WAC Clearinghouse in PDF format for free download. Print subscriptions support the ongoing publication of the journal and make it possible to offer digital copies as open access. Shipping costs are included in the subscription total.
