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.
