The newest Digital Edited Collection (DEC) of WLN centers on wellness and care in writing center work. In May 2020, we interviewed Dr. Genie Giaimo and Yanar Hashlamon, who were guest editors of a WLN special issue on the same theme and part of the editorial team for this DEC. Given that the Covid-19 reality continues, their insights and advice on how we might navigate and think about our personal, social, and professional lives remain largely relevant.

Creating a Writing Center Community: CAPA (Academic Publishing Advisory Center), Curitiba, Brazil

By |January 22nd, 2021|

CAPA (Academic Publishing Advisory Center, in Portuguese "Centro de Assessoria de Publicação Acadêmica") is the first true writing center in Brazil, founded in 2016 by Professor Ron Martinez. There is a need to talk about writing (even in Portuguese) since students feel pressured and have few opportunities to reflect upon their writing processes. Also, scholars and students in Brazil suffer from enormous pressure to publish articles in prestigious, high-impact journals, and this usually entails publishing in English -- a phenomenon related to the "internationalization of higher education". CAPA addresses both issues at once but It is for this latter reason that students and faculty alike seek out our writing center; if CAPA dealt with only the former, it is unlikely the writing center would reach as many people as it does.
