We here at Praxis are delighted to bring you our Spring 2017 issue, “Rethinking the Writing Center.” For this issue we have assembled articles that offer new and exciting ways for writing centers to revise and reconsider their current practices. In some ways this might be a mundane way to think about writing center scholarship. Are we not always trying to find new ways forward—new ways of understanding the work that we do as writing center administrators, consultants, and scholars? Yet this perpetual drive is what makes writing center studies such a vibrant field in which to work. Given the relationships we cultivate with the students who visit our centers to grow as writers and our surrounding institutions, it’s vital that we constantly consider the best possible ways to serve our consultants, consultees, and the broader institutional networks of which our centers are a part. Instead of being stuck in old methodologies, writing center scholars are ever paring away what doesn’t work and replacing it with new, more effective approaches to improving the writing (and writing practices) of our tutees.
