Journal of Response to Writing

The Journal of Response to Writing publishes papers based on research, theory, and/or practice that meaningfully contribute to an understanding of how response practices lead to better writing.

JRW has three purposes:

  1. Provide a venue for theorizing and reporting ground-breaking research on response to writing
  2. Invite writing theorists, researchers, and practitioners to a venue to share their work with one another and colleagues in adjacent fields, most notably Composition, Applied Linguistics, and Foreign Language teaching viz a viz L1 and L2 writing
  3. Provide new or inexperienced teachers with immediate suggestions for use in giving, encouraging, or managing responses to their students’ writing
