Welcome to the Inkshed Newsletter site, published by CASLL (the Canadian Association for the Study of Language and Learning). This site invites you to read and contribute to online discussion about language, writing and learning in both groupings we still call newsletters, and in informal postings. The material here reflects CASLL’s mandate to explore the ways that theory and practice intersect in the study and teaching of writing and reading. The new site aims to extend the reach of the historic Inkshed Website, which archives more than 25 years of lively newsletter issues, and it adds an easily navigable information display to the email function of the Inkshed listserv. (You can subscribe to that too by emailing listerv@listserv.utoronto.ca; put “Subscribe CASLL-L [your name]” in the subject line.)

Use the links in the top and side menus to navigate the site, including both newsletter pieces and blog posts, and please join the discussion!

This site takes advantage of WordPress software to enable the lively discussions typical of Inkshed. The Newsletter section is for articles, reviews, accounts of research, investigations of theoretical or practical questions, and short reflective stories and poems. The sidebar contains Blog Posts, with timely announcements and short opinion pieces that invite multiple responses. Posts and responses are saved in a searchable archive. Besides reading, you can also write for the site. Reply boxes on newsletter pages and blogs invite direct responses. The Contribute section outlines the process for sending new blog posts and newsletter articles to keep the discussion going.
