‘Kansas English’ journal earns 2023 Affiliate Journal of Excellence Award from National Council of Teachers of English

Kansas English,” edited by Dr. Katie Cramer, professor of English education in the School of Education, and published in WSU’s Open Journal Systems by the Kansas Association of Teachers of English, has been named a recipient of the 2023 NCTE Affiliate Journal of Excellence Award, given by the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE). This is the fourth year in a row that “Kansas English” has earned this distinction.

Established in 1995, the award honors outstanding affiliate journals and their editors who demonstrate excellence in these publications. The winning affiliate journal must be a magazine-type publication—print or online—and provide members with scholarly articles on issues and topics related to English language arts teaching. The journals are judged on content, organization and scholarly exploration; appeal to many different groups within the affiliate; coverage of important issues in English language arts education; and inclusion of other types of writing (e.g., poetry, affiliate news, book reviews).

The Affiliate Journal of Excellence Award winners will be announced at the 2023 NCTE Annual Convention in Columbus, OH, during the affiliate session Nov. 19.
