VANCOVER, WASH. – Centerpoint, a journal published by the staff of the Writing
Center at Washington State University Vancouver, under the supervision of Kandy
Roberston, Ph. D., is currently seeking articles on writing and the writing process. Artist-
poet Richard F. Yates, and humorous newspaper columnist Richard O’Brien helm the
current incarnation of the journal, which is dedicated to publishing materials dealing with

and technical writers.
