Call for Proposals: IWCA Collaborative at CCCC 2017

The IWCA Collaborative at CCCC 2017 will be accepting proposals for sessions through Friday, December 16. We invite you to join your Writing Center colleagues from around the country for a day of active collaboration at Portland State University on March 15, 9am-6pm.

We are calling this year’s Collaborative “The Change Lab: Collaborating, Cooperating, Coordinating.” Why do writing center scholars go to professional conferences? To share the findings of our scholarly work, sure. But, many of us also go for the chance to engage with our peers from other institutions—to learn together, to problem solve, and to plan for the future in ways we cannot do alone. The IWCA Collaborative at CCCC offers the writing center community an opportunity to spend a full day of working together—not to share what we’ve already done, but to help each other with what still needs doing. It is our goal that if you participate in the 2017 Collaborative as a presenter or attendees you will finish the day with concrete “Monday morning moves”—plans you can immediately translate into action.

If you have questions about the conference, your proposal, or registration, we’re happy to talk with you: Jennifer Follett ( or Lauri Dietz (
