YOUNG SCHOLARS IN WRITING
Young Scholars in Writing: Undergraduate Research in Writing and Rhetoric publishes research and theoretical articles from undergraduates on writing, writers, rhetoric, discourse, language, and related topics.
“Young scholars” refers not to age but to experience with research in writing, rhetoric, and related topics. We invite all undergraduates to submit their research on these subjects!
Young Scholars in Writing will begin accepting submissions for Vol. 16 in January, 2018.
When we reopen for submissions, visit our Online Submissions page or see the About page.
We will be accepting submissions to our Articles section, our Spotlight on First-Year Writing section (for research by students in first-year college writing courses), and our Comments & Response section (for responses to articles published in previous issues of YSW).
Submissions for Volume 16 will be accepted from Jan. 1 to June 30, 2018.
Visit our Facebook page for updates and community.
Congratulations to the many young scholars who have published in the pages of our journal!

The author (with Elizabeth Wardle) of the influential Writing about Writing textbook as well as countless essays and book chapters, Dr. Downs will bring his keen intellect, boundless energy, and astute eye for ground-breaking ideas to the work of editing YSW. Dr. Downs has been a member of YSW’s editorial board since 2008, and he helped launch the journal’s “Spotlight on First-Year Writing.” The editorial board is feels fortunate indeed to have such an outstanding scholar, teacher, and colleague serving as YSW’s leader.
