NCTE publishes ten professional journals, including at least one for each membership section. Volunteer editors ensure that the peer-reviewed content is of the highest quality and is relevant to the lives of NCTE members and subscribers. Because these journals are all published through different volunteer editors, the submission guidelines vary for each:
- College Composition and Communication (Jonathan Alexander, editor)
- College English (Kelly Ritter, editor)
- English Education (Tara Star Johnson, editor)
- English Journal (Julie Gorlewski and David Gorlewski, coeditors)
- English Leadership Quarterly (Oona Abrams, editor)

Contribute a Story about Your Team's Learning
The Literacy in Learning Exchange, the website of the National Center for Literacy Education (NCLE), is looking for stories—"Portraits of Change"—about the challenges and successes experienced by educators working together in collaborative learning teams.
Portraits of Change are intended to foster conversation and deeper learning around NCLE core beliefs:
- Literacy teaching and learning is everyone’s business—in and out of school, across grades, and across disciplines.
- Professional learning through collaboration with peers and around topics or questions that strengthen teaching and learning makes a difference.
- Conditions and structures such as time, resources, and culture are key drivers of successful change.
