Dialogue: A Journal for Writing Specialists

Editorial Policy

Dialogue: A Journal for Writing Specialists provides a forum for dialogue, debate, conversation, and gives writing specialists the opportunity to talk to and with one another. The concept of dialogue is promoted with the contents and the varieties of discourse published in the journal.

The editor encourages submissions that are collaborative, debate-oriented, and responsive from compositionists and rhetoricians; creative writers; technical, business, and professional writing specialists; those who work with developmental and ESL writers; those who work in National Writing Projects and literacy programs; WAC specialists; graduate students who are studying writing. Two or more authors might explore differences about some area of teaching or research, or essays might be submitted together that examine an issue from divergent perspectives. Writing professionals might record interviews and round table discussions. Book reviews will include responses from the authors. In keeping with the concept of Dialogue, two members of the editorial board review each manuscript, sign their reviews, and direct them to the authors. The editor also writes evaluations of submissions. Copies of these signed reviews are sent to the author and to the reviewers of the submission.

Submission Information

When submitting manuscripts (not previously published or being considered for publication), please

  • follow the current MLA style format
  • Submit three copies (articles no longer than 20 pages; book reviews no longer than 4 pages)
  • prepare the manuscript for blind review by including your name only on a separate cover page
