CCCC 2019 Call for Reviews


The Sweetland Digital Rhetoric Collaborative is seeking reviewers for the 2019 Conference on College Composition and Communication (CCCC) or the 2019 Two-Year College English Association Conference (TYCA) in Pittsburgh, PA. We are particularly interested in conference reviews relating to digital rhetoric, though you can propose another session to review. Reviews are published on the DRC website to help facilitate conversations about conference sessions among attendees and others who may not have been present at the conference.

If you would like to be a reviewer for a #4C19 or TYCA session, please visit this Google Spreadsheet to sign up for a session to review. You will be asked to provide the session info and a short bio of yourself.

Reviews can be composed in written text (500-1500 words) or in any other appropriate media as long as the information can be received by a user in 3-5 minutes. Your review should include an overview of the session, but should also address key implications, stakes, or take-away points. Please also make sure that if you offer relevant critique in your review, you do so in a collegial and constructive manner. We may edit received reviews or send reviews back for revision, if necessary. Feel free to reference previous reviews MLA 2019 and Watson 2018 as models.

Reviewers will receive an email close to the conference dates with information about the submission process.

Reviews due: Monday, April 1

If you have any questions or would like more information, you can contact the DRC fellows at
