We, the editorial staff at Writing Spaces, have witnessed with horror the recent brutal deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbury, Tony McDade, David McAtee, Rayshard Brooks, and so many others at the hands of law enforcement and White supremacist vigilantes in the U.S. We apologize for not speaking out sooner, and want to make explicitly clear that we denounce all forms of racism and White supremacy and commit to anti-racist publishing, community-building, and research practices.
Writing Spaces: Readings on Writing, an open textbook series for undergraduate composition is back, under new editorial management! On the heels of our recent relaunch with Volume 3, we seek proposals from diverse perspectives to build on our current offerings. Each Writing Spaces volume contains peer-reviewed collections of essays, all composed by teachers for students, with each chapter available for free download from our website under a Creative Commons license. Volumes are also published in print through our partner Parlor Press.
