Get Involved with the DRC at CCCC 2020! [Update: Cancelled]


UPDATE: Due to the health and safety concerns around COVID-19, the CCCC Executive Committee has cancelled this year’s conference, which means we will not be requesting session reviewers after all. We would like to thank all who volunteered to review a session nevertheless, and we welcome you to sign up again to review sessions for Computers & Writing or for another future conference. Stay tuned for more information in the coming months.

Thank you for your understanding. We wish you and yours well during these uncertain times.

The Sweetland Digital Rhetoric Collaborative is seeking reviewers for CCCC 2020. We are particularly interested in conference reviews relating to digital rhetoric. 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 CCCC 2020 session, please see this Google Sheet to sign up for a session to review.

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 refer to the CCCC 2019 reviews as models.

Reviews due: Friday, April 10, 2020

Reviewers will receive an email close to the conference dates with information about the submission process. If you have any questions or would like more information, you can contact the DRC fellows at
