The Grassroots Writing Research Journal

The Grassroots Writing Research Journal is produced twice each year by the Writing Program at Illinois State University. The print issue of each journal is used as a primary text in two of ISU’s undergraduate general education writing courses. Digital versions of previous issues are available online. The title of the journal reflects our aspirations—to present writing research by different authors and in a wide range of different topics, forms, and media. The journal solicits authors from within and outside of our institutions and other academic institutions. We’ve published faculty, graduate students, undergraduates, high school students, and nonstudents– all Writing researchers. We encourage authors to share not only what they’ve learned about writing but also how they learned it. Thus, each new volume brings together a diverse collection of articles that all enact some form of writing research from a variety of authors. Authors can learn more about publishing on our websites, which offer both back issues of the journal and a range of different guides for researching and writing for the journal.
