Get Involved with the DRC at Computers & Writing 2019


The Sweetland Digital Rhetoric Collaborative is seeking reviewers for and usability testers during the 2019 Computers and Writing conference at Michigan State University.

Panel Reviewers

If you would like to be a reviewer for this year’s Computers & Writing conference, please visit our Google Spreadsheet to sign up for a keynote or panel 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.

Keynote or panel reviewers attend sessions and write brief reviews (300-1000 words) in written text or other media. Your review should include an overview of the session, and might also address key implications, challenges, or other take-aways. If you decide to offer criticism in your review, we will work with you to make sure your criticism is collegial and constructive. Our 2018 C&W Reviews are good models for this type of genre.

If you decide to be a reviewer, we will send you an email closer to the conference date with information about the submission process. Reviews are due Monday, July 15th. 

Usability Testers

The DRC is also looking for users to do brief interviews and usability tests to help improve our website’s user experience. If you’re interested, you can sign up on this Google Form, stop by our table on Friday, June 21st, or email us at
