Editorial Work

The editorial teams that I’m part of represent a combination of traditional academic work and community outreach, public writing, and civic engagement. I see editorial work as an opportunity to engage with multiple audiences and develop writing that circulates within scholarly and non-scholarly spaces.

The Best of Independent Rhetoric and Composition Journals

Series Co-Editor, 2014-present

Associate Editor, 2012-2013

Responsibilities include reaching out to independent journals in Rhetoric and Composition to select potential articles for publication and developing multiple writing groups across institutions and populations of faculty and graduate students to read and evaluate selected publications. Importantly, the money generated by book sales goes to support the independent journals’ presence at CCCC, thereby supporting their circulation within the field.
