Writing Spaces is an open-source textbook series for undergraduate
composition students. Peer-reviewed chapters are written specifically for students and include a teacher resource section for other instructors. The editors are seeking to expand its student and writing instructor audiences to include those at English as a Medium of Instruction (EMI)institutions and instructors teaching English for Academic Purposes (EAP).

Each proposal should consist of a 500 word abstract. Proposals will be accepted until September 1, 2022, and should be submitted as a .doc, .pdf, .rtf, or .odt file via email to email@example.com with “Volume 7 Proposal, [Title]” in the subject line.
Editors will review proposals by December 1, 2022 and will invite some authors to
prepare manuscripts for peer review. Selected chapters will be selected through a double–blind review process by reviewers with similar areas of expertise.
Final submitted essays will be approximately 4,000 to 5,000 words (no longer) and will be
written for a student audience. In addition to the essay, authors will create brief instructor
resources and discussion questions that will be published to the Writing Spaces website for instructor use. The publication of the 7th volume is planned for late Summer 2023. More information for authors is available in the authors’ area of our website: http://writingspaces.org/authors.
