The International Society for the Advancement of Writing Research - ISAWR invites you to the Fourth World Conference on Writing Research

The International Society for the Advancement of Writing Research (ISAWR) is composed of researchers from all over the world interested in writing across all education levels. ISAWR's Writing Research Across Borders conference is currently the most important global research meeting on writing research and is aimed at discussing topics related with writing and knowledge production across different levels of education. In seven years, the WRAB Conference has promoted the exchange of approaches, the regular updating and the creation of networks to carry out research and international projects. In order to share experiences and research on reading and writing from all over the world more fully with the work in Latin America and the Caribbean, the next Conference will be held in Bogotá, Colombia, February 2017.

The Conference Organizers invite proposals for presentations, symposia, round tables, and posters from all perspectives and methods, as well as directed to all levels of writing development.
