June 30 submission deadline for Young Scholars in Writing approaching!

Hey, All —

Solistice is almost upon us, which means that so too is the June 30 deadline for submissions to this year’s volume of Young Scholars in Writing — less than two weeks to go! Already, our undergraduate peer reviewers and faculty advising editors are reviewing the intriguing group of submissions we’ve received so far this year, and we covet an opportunity to consider your students’ research on  writing, writers, rhetoric, discourse, language, and related topics. You and your students can find more information on submissions at the journal’s new website, http://arc.lib.montana.edu/ojs/index.php/Young-Scholars-In-Writing/about, under the Submissions heading.
We’re also happy to announce that volume 12 of YSW, which printed earlier this spring, is now available in PDF on the site as well. If your students need inspiration, they could look among a wonderful collection of articles such as “Feminist Research as Journey,” “Value in Academic Writing,” “God Terms as Exigence in the Rhetorical Battle over Keystone XL,” “The Art and Rhetoric of Letter Writing,” “An Investigation of D/deaf Literacy Theory and Narratives,” and the intriguingly named “The Enthymeme: An Analysis of Sexist Advice Animals.” (We don’t make this stuff up, the students do!)  And that’s less than half of what’s in the current table of contents. We would, of course, encourage you to consider pieces in the journal as you’re selecting readings for your courses this year as well.
Feel free to send any questions to me in my Editor hat, doug.downs@montana.edu.
Cheers —
Doug
