We are seeking submissions for a WPA Journal symposium on race and the impact of the Black Lives Matter movement or other antiracist projects on writing program administration, including first-year composition, professional and technical communication, writing centers, and undergraduate or graduate writing programs. More specifically, we are seeking proposals for: *1000 word short essays speaking to the effects of Black Lives Matter and other antiracist efforts on writing program administration, or *500 word narrative vignettes from the perspective of writing program administrators or teachers and/or students working within writing programs and responding to the administration of such programs with Black Lives Matter and antiracism in mind.
