Special Issue of Writing and Pedagogy
Call For Papers: Writing Development Across the Lifespan
The road to adult competence in writing is long, beginning before the earliest childhood scribbles and passing through many locations in and out of school and beyond. As well, writing competence enlists multiple dimensions of changing lives--experience of the world, development and repurposing of psychological resources, social interactions and organized activities that writing participates in, knowledge of cultural resources, emotional orientations, physical manipulation of technologies, social roles and status, and even economic power. Consequently, each person's experienced path into writing is individual and leads to a different kind of writing competence. Yet our studies of writing and writing instruction tend to focus on a limited period in the life of a writer or a single level of education, and often view the competence as a single general thing. Even then, we have only a limited number of longitudinal studies that track change within the four or six years of a singl
e educational institution.
To foster more studies that look at writing development across the lifespan and writing policies and programs that extend across life periods, a special issue of Writing and Pedagogy is to appear in Summer 2018 (19:2). This issue invites submissions that have a longitudinal orientation or otherwise look at writing development, writing instruction, other interventions, curricula, or educational policies that stretch across age epochs or several years. Possible topics include:
• Comparison of texts from different periods in students' lives.
• Writers' retrospective views of their writing development over time.
• Longitudinal case studies of writers' development over life periods
• Stratified samples of student writing at different ages
• Curricula and other writing interventions that extend over several years of student's lives
• Writers' transitions from one level of schooling or from one workplace experience to the next
• Application of developmental research and theory from other disciplinary domains that bear on writing development
• Studies of the influence of available social experiences and changes in those experiences on the changes in writing
• Comparisons of writing development under different cultural, social, or economic conditions
• Studies of writing development in moments of encounter with new writing opportunities
• Studies of differences of curricula, standards, and assessments offered for students of different ages
• Studies of the impact of different expectations and opportunities on writing development at different levels of schooling
Contributors may also address an issue or topic that is not listed above but which illuminates some aspect of writing development from a lifespan perspective.
We seek articles in all categories, as follows:
Featured Essay: A full-length article (7500-9500 words) offering a fresh perspective, grounded in theory and empirical results and potentially controversial, on a major issue or issues related to Lifespan Development of writing or instruction or policy relevant to a Lifespan perspective.
Research Matters: A full-length article which provides empirical research (e.g. quasi- experimental study, action research, and case study) on writing development that stretches across several ages or transitions across life epochs.
Reflections on Practice: A mid-length article (3500-6500 words) which presents theoretically grounded, empirically warranted, and referenced discussions of practices involving the teaching and learning of L2 writing in the Asian context.
From the e-Sphere: A short article (1000-2000 words) or mid-length article (3500-6500 words) describing educational interventions that are attentive to writing development that extends beyond the length of s single course.
New Books: A short review or full-length, multi-book review article on books published or to be published in 2016, 2017, or 2018 that address issues related to Lifespan development of writing.
For articles in all categories other than book reviews, interested potential authors should send their email and postal addresses along with a provisional title and draft article or detailed abstract, summary, or outline of contents by email or hard copy by post to the guest editor. For best consideration, submit this by 30 April 2017.

Higher Education Writing Studies in Latin America
In recent decades there has been increasing interest in higher education academic writing throughout Latin America in both L1 and L2. Research, teaching, programs and professional networks have been growing within individual countries. This work has relied on a variety of theories and approaches. In some places this work has been carried out as an extension of genre theory; elsewhere various forms of linguistic and applied theories have been influential; elsewhere pedagogics and didactics have dominated; elsewhere, cognitive and educational psychology; and still elsewhere sociocultural and critical theory. Despite this flowering of research, theory and practical work, there have been few common publications that bring together the many scholars working throughout the region. This special issue will show the diversity and accomplishment of this work. We hope this special issue will foster exchange and cooperation among scholars of Lusophone and Spanish-speaking scholars in the region as well as expose the work in Latin America to a global audience. Therefore we invite articles presenting the varied approaches taken throughout Latin America towards writing in L1 or L2 in higher education. Articles can be present research, theory, teaching and learning practice, other programmatic supports for writing, and understanding students writing processes, the development of professional networks related to writing, or any similar related topic.
Be certain to check the journal’s rules for submission including the requirement for at least one of the co-authors to hold the doctoral degree https://periodicos.ufsc.br/index.php/desterro. The portal to accept submissions will be open from October 1st ,2015 to February 1st ,2016.
Estudos de escrita nas universidades latino-americanas
A área de escrita acadêmica na universidade tem despertado interesse dos países da América Latina nas últimas décadas, tanto em L1 com em L2. As pesquisas, o ensino, os programas e as redes profissionais têm crescido em cada qual dos países a partir de várias teorias e abordagens. Em algumas regiões, os trabalhos são conduzidos como extensão de teorias de gêneros textuais/discursivos, em outras, a influência vem ora de teorias linguísticas e aplicadas, ora das áreas de pedagogia e didática, ora da cognição e psicologia educacional, ou ainda, da teoria sociocultural e crítica. Apesar do crescimento de pesquisas, teorias e trabalhos práticos, há pouca publicação que congregue os trabalhos realizados por pesquisadores da região. Esse número especial busca trazer a diversidade e o alcance desses trabalhos com vistas a promover intercâmbios e cooperação entre pesquisadores da América Latina. Assim, convocamos artigos latino-americanos de diversas abordagens de escrita em nível universitário em L1 e/ou L2. Os artigos podem apresentar pesquisa, teorias, práticas de ensino e aprendizagem, programas institucionais de apoio à escrita, desenvolvimento de redes profissionais relacionadas à escrita e temas correlatos.
Favor consultar as regras para submissão incluindo a obrigatoriedade de o autor principal ter doutoradohttps://periodicos.ufsc.br/index.php/desterro. O website aceitará a submissão dos artigos de primeiro de outubro de 2015 a primeiro de fevereiro de 2016.
El importante “Writing Programs Worldwide: Profiles of Academic Writing in Many Places” (2012), que incluye varios programas y cursos de escritura en Latinoamérica, ahora se ha convertido en una iniciativa online: Writing Programs Worldwide.
Se trata de una página para que docentes e investigadores compartan y discutan iniciativas de enseñanza de la escritura. Está organizada por países, y además de los textos, incluye fotos de autores y actividades. El objetivo es que el libro se expanda con muchas más iniciativas y muchas más lenguas y soportes audiovisuales.
