Call for Papers: CWCA/ACCR Conference Presenters
REVISED DEADLINE: Submit your article by October 19, 2017.
Are you interested in publishing your CWCA/ACCR conference presentation as an article? In early 2018, the Canadian Journal for Studies in Discourse and Writing / Rédactologie (CJSDW/R) will publish a special section based on presentations made at the CWCA/ACCR 2017 conference. Whether you presented as part of a panel, in your own 20-minute presentation, or through a poster, CJSDRW/R and guest editors Kathy Block, Jordana Garbati, and Clare Bermingham welcome your article submission.
Articles will follow the conventions of the CJSDW/R. Please see the CJSDW/R website for more information for prospective authors.
All articles must be formatted in Word and submitted via the CJSDW/R submissions page.
Articles will be screened by the special section guest editors and then submitted to a blind-review process.
Prospective authors may contact guest editor Kathy Block at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.

The CWCA Conference will take place May 25-26, 2017 at OCAD University in Toronto, Ontario.
Keynote speaker: Dr. Frankie Condon, University of Waterloo
We will circulate the call for proposals within the next few weeks, but in the meantime, mark your calendars for what promises to be a fabulous event in a great city!
If you’re attending IWCA this week, please look for the CWCA chair, Heather Fitzgerald, at the CWCA affiliates meeting on October 14th at 6:45pm.
Due to a higher-than-expected amount of money we received in grants and from sponsors this year, the CWCA/ACCR still has funds available for six travel grants for the upcoming “Energizing Writing Centres” conference May 26-27 held at SAIT in Calgary, AB.
These grants are available to both conference presenters (up to CAN$500) and all students/tutors (up to CAN$400) who are either attending or presenting at the conference.
The deadline for applications has been extended to Friday, April 22; however, these grants will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis, provided that the applications are complete and meet the basic criteria outlined for each category.
