The 2015 Symposium Organizing committee seeks proposals for 20-minute presentations that address various topics within the field of L2 writing broadly defined.

Any topic related to theory, research, or teaching of second language writing is welcome.  As with previous Symposiums, we are interested in L2 writing issues in any second or foreign language for any age group in academic contexts.

Proposals must include both a 50-word summary and a 300-word abstract.

To submit your proposal, you will use the online proposal submission form:

Proposals must be received by Friday 13 March 2015 (21:59 pm New Zealand Time). Proposals will be peer reviewed by a panel of experts. Notification of acceptance will be sent out After 12 April 2015.

Up to 2 submissions are allowed, but the same person cannot be listed as the first author for more than one proposal. Once the proposal has been accepted, no additional presenters can be added.

We look forward to receiving your proposal!
