Writing Centers Association of Japan

The Writing Centers Association of Japan (WCAJ) is a community of scholars, teachers, students, university administrators, and other professionals established to exchange ideas about the role of writing centers in nurturing and advancing the culture of academic writing in Japan as well as the use of writing to improve teaching and learning.

WCAJ aims to foster communication among writing centers in Japan and to provide a forum for discussions on second-language writing.


The WCAJ’s Tenth Symposium on Writing Centers in Asia was held at Toyo University in Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo, on Friday, March 9th, 2018. Details are available on the Events page.

Our Eleventh Symposium will be held on Sunday, February 24, 2019, at Sophia University in Tokyo. More details will be announced here as soon as they are available.
