The Writing, Culture, and Community Practices series seeks manuscripts that move between disciplinary identity and community practices and that address how writing/literacies are enacted to create social empowerment and social change.
Work submitted for this series should: describe and analyze literacy and writing projects that work with communities for individual and collective community goals; enact and model methods of community/scholarly partnership; represent knowledge about community members’ lives, often through coauthored works by community partners; demonstrate interaction between scholarly and community-based modes of knowledge, writing, and social action.

In addition to publishing book-length studies, the series also seeks small-run publications that emerge out of university/community partnerships for inclusion and distribution within the series.
