Minneapolis Cityscape

We invite you to attend WPA 2009 in the heart of the Twin Cities.

The 2009 conference, workshop, and institutes will unfold in Minneapolis, the City of Lakes. The annual WPA Workshop (an intensive experience July 12-15, prior to the conference, for new and renewing WPAs), Institutes (one-day learning experiences on July 16th led by national experts), and Conference (a highly interactive chance to present your work and talk with other national leaders) will be the heart of our gathering.

The conference hotel is the Radisson University Hotel, on the edge of the Minneapolis campus of the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. The hotel is conveniently located near a number of Twin Cities sites: the Weisman Art Museum on the University of Minnesota campus; downtown Minneapolis; St. Paul's shopping districts; many miles of walking and biking paths along the Mississippi River and lakes; and more.

WPA 2009 is hosted locally by the Department of Writing Studies, University of Minnesota-Twin Cities, and members of the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities. The conference will begin at 6 P.M. on July 16th and end at 10:30 a.m. on July 19th with a Town Hall Meeting.

Registration is closed.
