Southern Discourse began as the newsletter of the Southeastern Writing Center Association. Christine Cozzens revived the Southern Discourse newsletter in the spring of 1998, and in 2001 the SWCA board decided to designate SDC as the "publication" of SWCA after it began to include research articles, and in-depth works about writing center related issues.
Over the years the SDC review board has grown to include an extraordinary number of writing center scholars and professionals whose contributions continue to drive the the field of teaching writing, and writing center administration, and assessment.
