Call for WPA Journal Editor(s) or Editorial Team

The Council of Writing Program Administrators is seeking a new Editor or editorial team for its official journal, WPA: Writing Program Administration.

Our current very distinguished editorial team, led by Managing Editors Gregory Glau, Duane Roen, and Barry Maid, has shepherded the journal through three years of increasing visibility and importance, but they are ready to move on to other work in the field.

The WPA is now calling for applications for the position of WPA Journal Editor or Editorial Team. The term is for three years, with possibility for renewal, and starts in Spring 2007; responsibility for the first issue will be for Fall/Winter 2007 (Volume 31 Number 1) with assistance from Greg, Duane, and Barry.
