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 love salmon, hug trees, enjoy liquid sunshine, and refuse to drive in over three inches of snow, chances are you're a PNWesterner--we welcome your participation!
As a first step, plan to attend our fourth annual PNWCA conference in Bellingham, WA, on April 27-28, 2007. Organized around the theme, "Let's Talk about Talk," this year's conference features writing center maven and all around wonderful person, Muriel Harris. We guarantee a good time (!!), so don't just attend--bring your colleagues.
