Writing Centers Associations
Writing Center 2000:
Meeting the Challenges of the New Century
Professor Muriel Harris, Purdue University
Professor Edward M. White, California State University, San Bernardino
Those invited include writing center administrators and staff, university or high school administrators, graduate and undergraduate writing consultants and tutors, and teachers of writing in composition programs and across the disciplines. Participants will meet to discuss the multiple ways that writing centers work to enhance the culture of writing instruction in their own institutions; to share insights, strategies, and practices; to celebrate the work done in writing centers and to imagine what else might be done; and to foster communication across disciplines, between institutions, and among participants. Membership in ECWCA or NWCA is not required for attendance.
A formal call for proposals will be made in September 1998. Proposals on the topics listed above will be accepted for 20-minute individual presentations or 50-minute panels of related presentations; proposals for workshops and for poster presentations will also be considered. Deadline for submission is December 1, 1998; presenters will be notified about January 15, 1999. Inquiries for further information on the upcoming conference may be made to:
