Announcement: New Scholarly Blog on Writing Mentorship in Canada

Canadian Writing Centre Review/La revue Canadienne des centres de rédaction (CWCR/RCCR) is a publication of CWCA/ACCR, designed to chronicle narratives of writing mentorship in Canada and to facilitate scholarly exchange. CWCR/RCCR is a professional periodical in blog format for scholarly writing on writing centre theory, pedagogy, administration, histories, and stories specific to Canadian contexts of writing mentorship outside of for-credit courses across educational contexts. It’s a place where writing centre administrators, instructors, peer tutors, and student writers discuss and document their scholarly work, collectively creating an account of the current activity of the diverse Canadian writing centre community that captures the places, people, and contexts shaping writing centre developments.
