Attending CCCC 2021? Be a Session Reviewer!


The Sweetland Digital Rhetoric Collaborative is seeking reviewers for the 2021 Conference on College Composition and Communication (April 7-10), which takes place virtually this year. We are particularly interested in conference reviews pertaining to digital rhetoric, though you are welcome to propose your own session to review. Reviews are published on the DRC website to help facilitate conversations about conference sessions among attendees and others who may have not been present at the conference. 

If you would like to be a session reviewer for CCCC 2021, please visit this Google Spreadsheet to sign up for a session to review. You will be asked to provide information about the session and a short bio for 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 browse the CCCC 2019 and Computers & Writing 2019 reviews for models as you compose yours. 

Reviewers will receive an email near the start of the conference with information about the submission process. If you have any questions, or if you would like more information, please reach out to us at

Reviews are due Saturday, April 24 by 11:59 pm EST.
