About WOE

Who are we?
Writing on the Edge, an interdisciplinary journal focusing on writing and the teaching of writing, is aimed primarily at college-level composition teachers and others interested in writing and writing instruction. It is published at the University of California at Davis and appears two times a year-in spring and fall.

Why are we on the edge?

We're on the edge because we are emphasizing new approaches to composition such as cross-disciplinary writing, computers in the classroom, and collaborative writing. We're on the edge because we want our articles to be enjoyable to read as well as stimulating for their contributions to pedagogical theory and practice. And we're on the edge because we are excited about the growing diversity of our student population but concerned about effectively teaching composition to students from ethnically diverse backgrounds.

What makes us different?
We want articles that capture the excitement of writing and teaching, so we encourage authors to experiment with other forms besides the traditional academic journal article, such as personal essays, humor, and fiction. We also want articles well-grounded in scholarship that tell us something new about our profession, that challenge our established ways of thinking, and that stimulate us to reexamine what we are doing as teachers and writers. In all submissions, we want our readers to sense the person as well as scholar behind the writing, so we are looking for articles and essays written in a clear, engaging, and personal style.
