The purpose of the PNWCA is to further the theoretical, practical, and political interests of writing center professionals, and to encourage dialogue about writing and learning among students, faculty and staff. Membership includes writing center staff from Alaska, British Columbia, Oregon, Washington and the Yukon.
Founded and affiliated with the International Writing Centers Association in 2004, the PNWCA and its officers truly wish to represent the needs unique to writing centers in our North American geographical region.
If you're a writing center professional from the region--and, yes, that includes writing tutors, consultants, assistants, and graduate teaching assistants--then we invite you to create an account, explore this site's resources, ask questions, and join conversations.
Below you will find links to the most recent announcements, posts, and news items below.
Here's a preliminary copy of the program for this year's joint conference on October 23-24. If you have any questions, please contact Jared Anthony and Ryan Simmons, program co-chairs.
See you in Spokane!
