Writing Spaces is an open textbook project for college-level writing studies courses. Each volume in the Writing Spaces: Readings on Writing series contains peer-reviewed collections of essays about writing—all composed by teachers for students—with each book available for download for free under a Creative Commons license.
The deadline for proposal submission to the first volume of Writing Spaces: Readings on Writing has been changed from April 10 to April 15. This is due to conflicting information that appeared in one of our earlier listserv posts announcing the project.
In response to the current economic crisis facing not only our nation, but also higher education, Chronicle of Higher Education blogger Lev Gonick
predict[s] fundamental change is the impact of open educational resources
on the textbook market. Traditional textbook publishers have held an
iron lock on the industry’s model for too long, and universities have
been tacitly complicit of the system. In the Web era, however, this
oligopolistic business practice is imploding.
