Praxis: A Writing Center Journal is a peer-reviewed scholarly journal published biannually by the University Writing Center at the University of Texas at Austin.

As a forum for writing-center practitioners, Praxis welcomes articles from writing-center consultants, administrators, and others concerned with issues related to writing-center training, consulting, labor, administration, and initiatives. 



The editorial board of Praxis seeks writing-center related articles from across the disciplines. The review board welcomes submissions three times a year for our Fall (August 15th deadline), Spring (January 15th deadline), and Summer (May 15th deadline) review cycles. Reviewers judge submissions according to whether they make a unique contribution to writing center studies and are written in a clear, accessible style. Reviewers are recruited based on their significant contributions to writing center practice and scholarship. All reviews are blind - both authors and reviewers remain anonymous.  Authors can expect review decisions by early November (for Fall cycles), mid-March (for Spring cycles), and early August (for Summer cycles).



This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.

Our blog, Axis, exists to give writing center practitioners a space to consider ideas and experience in a thoughtful but more informal medium and tone than publications in our three yearly Praxis issues. Axis is not peer reviewed. We strive to represent a diversity of opinions and positions, in this space. As such, please note that all opinions and positions expressed in Axis blog posts are the opinions of the posts' author(s), and do not represent the views of Praxis, itself, the University of Texas, the University Writing Center, our editors, or our editorial board.
