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.

Hi everyone!

The conference theme is Horizons and the deadline for proposal submissions is June 1, 2012.

Tutor Pay Rates

I am gathering data for a brief study through Portland Community College--Rock Creek on writing center tutor pay. I am particularly interested in knowing the pay rates of non-faculty tutors who hold B.A. degrees or higher. Please respond through this forum; or, if you prefer, email me at jeff.jaeckle@pcc.edu.

Thank you for assisting in this study!
