Young Scholars in Writing

Welcome to the website for Young Scholars in Writing: Undergraduate Research in Writing and Rhetoric, a peer-reviewed journal for undergraduates.

The “young scholars” in our title is not a marker of a scholar’s age but rather of his or her experience with discursive inquiry in writing, rhetoric, and related topics. Thus, we invite all young scholars in the field to submit their work!

Young Scholars in Writing is now accepting submissions for volume 12.  The submission window will close on June 30, 2014.  Please see "Submission Guidelines" for full details.

Young Scholars is generously funded by the College of Arts & Sciences at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. Dr. Jane Greer serves as editor.

Please address all inquiries to Dr. Greer at greerj@umkc.edu.


Young Scholars in Writing has three features:

     Spotlight on First-Year Writing
     Comments and Responses

Use the links to the right to learn about these features and how you might publish your research.

Congratulations to the many young scholars who have published in the
pages of our journal!
