Our Vision:

We want Literacies to be a journal for people to share ideas and experiences about how research and practice connect, and how each can inform the other.

To us, literacy practice includes a wide range of activities that help people learn, use and extend literacies. These activities include organized literacy programs as well as other activities that integrate literacy development and expand people’s opportunities and resources for reading and writing.

We value research that is connected to adult literacy programs and related activities in a range of sites and contexts across the country and around the world. We also value a range of types of inquiry including reflections, discussions, debates and creative work in various genres.

Our intention is to respect and nurture diversity. We insist that materials we publish use non-discriminatory language and avoid stereotypes.
