Welcome to the Pacific Northwest Writing Centers Association

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.

Privacy issues regarding disclosure of use of writing centre services?

Hello, First of all, I should introduce myself since I'm new to this group. My name is Theresa Bell and I'm the Writing Centre Coordinator at Royal Roads University. Our writing centre is still very new (the doors only opened on April 13, 2007), and it's been an exciting process of building a completely new service for our 3500 students, all of whom spend most of their programs working in the online environment.

Talking about Talking about Talk (After the Conference)

Hi, all. I just wanted to say that I'm interested in hearing about your ah-ha moments at the conference. Mine were all about conference-running, rather than about writing center talk, so I would LOVE to hear about yours! And I promise to share my own ah-ha moments, about conference administration, with Ann Harrington, next year's host(ess)! Here are some of the pictures, taken by our Whatcom friend Dean Hagin: http://faculty.whatcom.ctc.edu/swinans/pnwcapics.htm More to come; they'll be posted soon to this site by PNWCA photographer, Dennis Bennett.
