We welcome suggestions for other resources to include in future iterations, and we commit to updating this list annually to include new scholarship and fresh voices and perspectives.

We are seeking submissions for a WPA Journal symposium on race and the impact of the Black Lives Matter movement or other antiracist projects on writing program administration, including first-year composition, professional and technical communication, writing centers, and undergraduate or graduate writing programs. More specifically, we are seeking proposals for: *1000 word short essays speaking to the effects of Black Lives Matter and other antiracist efforts on writing program administration, or *500 word narrative vignettes from the perspective of writing program administrators or teachers and/or students working within writing programs and responding to the administration of such programs with Black Lives Matter and antiracism in mind.
