Conferences and Organizations
The MWCA Ideas Exchange is part of a larger community of writing center conferences, including:
East Central Writing Centers Association (ECWCA) Conference
Held annually in the spring. The ECWCA is our regional writing centers
association and is loosely defined to include approximately ten
states in the east-central region of the U.S. See the website for
up-to-date information on upcoming ECWCA conferences.
International Writing Centers Association (IWCA) Conference
Held approximately every 18 months. Although this is an international
conference, it has been held (thus far) in U.S. locations only.
To search for up-to-date information on upcoming IWCA conferences,
visit the IWCA website at http://writingcenters.org/
This is an excellent site full of great resources, including information
on upcoming IWCA summer institutes.
National Conference on Peer Tutoring in Writing (NCPTW)
Held approximately every 18 months. The NCPTW is a conference that
has historically focused on the specific needs and interests of
peer tutors. Conferences are sometimes combined with IWCA.
