In this episode, Esther Namubiru, Associate Editor of the blog, spoke with Dr. Lucie Moussu, Writing Center Director at the Royal Military College in Kingston, Ontario, Cananda on her recent article titled “The Ultimate Guide to Poorly Designed Research Projects”, published on the September 2022 issue of WLN: A Journal of Writing Center Scholarship.

“In writing centers, we tell our students to be patient with themselves that writing takes lifetimes to master. But we don’t allow ourselves to admit that we sometimes struggle and that we’re not always perfect and that things don’t always go well.”

—Dr. Lucie Moussu

The “Slow Agency” Podcast

Created and hosted by your CWCAB editors, the goal of this podcast is to open up time and space in this productivity-saturated culture to slow down and dialogue with leading thinkers and practitioners in writing studies worldwide. The title of the podcast is inspired by Micciche, L. (2011) For slow agency. Journal of the Council of Writing Program Administrators, 35 (1), 73-90. Our inaugural episode features WLN’s journal editors whose wisdom and hard work make this journal and the blog possible.
