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.

A Writing Center Harvest

Let’s gather with our TYCA colleagues in Yakima in early fall and explore our work and our connections to our students and to each another. These (and more) are the harvest of our professional lives.

DDO at Oregon State University

Oregon DDO I would like to thank Dennis Bennett and his staff for hosting our recent Director’s Day Out (DDO) at Oregon State University. I was delighted to meet writing center peeps from across the state of Oregon. The conversations were lively, and I came home refreshed, renewed, and grateful to be part of such a rich community. Thanks to Dennis for gracious hosting and organization. Special thanks to Jenny Dresler, who personally phoned directors to encourage attendance and Galina Romantsova who made the catering arrangements for the delicious snacks and lunch.
