Archive Creators Present at 13th Annual Interdisciplinary Social Sciences Conference in Granada, Spain


Brian Fitzpatrick and Jessica McCaughey, creators of the Archive of Workplace Writing Experiences, presented the archive and early research from its interviews in July 2018 at the 13th Annual Interdisciplinary Social Sciences Conference at the University of Granada in Spain, along with researchers from around the world interested in Organizational Studies. The talk, titled, “The Archive of Workplace Writing Experiences: An Exploration of Written Communities of Professional Practice,” was well received, and we hope that this might be an early step towards expanding the archive to include the voices of workplace writers from around the world. Stay tuned!

AWWE Wins CCCC Emergent Researcher Award


Update: 1/25/2018

We are excited to announce that The Archive of Workplace Writing Experiences is a recipient of a 2018 Emergent Researchers Award, granted by the Conference on College Composition and Communication (CCCC)!

We are so honored to have been recognized by CCCC and are so excited for what this means for the future of this project. While we are sadly not able to be in Kansas City this year to accept in person, we are thrilled and grateful to receive this award and are excited to work with CCCC in growing our project.

With this grant, the Archive of Workplace Writing Experiences will be successfully funded for at least the next two years. This means we are able to expand our research, invite more interviewees to participate, and bring our work to more students, teachers, and employers.

There are more announcements to come soon, including an expanded second phase of interviews and data collection, more opportunities to participate, new conference presentations and more.

Thank you all for your support — whether you’ve worked with us, participated in our interviews, shared/liked our page, etc, we are so grateful to have you be a part of this project.
