More Seats at the Table: Radical Inclusion in Writing Programs
Baltimore, Maryland @ The Baltimore Marriott Waterfront Hotel
Workshop: July 21-24, 2019
Institutes: July 25, 2019
Conference: July 25-28, 2019
Writing happens all around us—frequently in traditional college settings, but equally frequently in places (and with people) we might not ordinarily think about. If we turned our collective gaze to those non-traditional sites, students, faculty, and methods, what might we see? What writing programs currently exist that are understudied or marginalized in some way—for example, community-college programs, prison writing programs, community and adult-education writing programs, immigrant-focused and second-language programs, basic-writing programs? Within our college settings, how are writing programs serving populations that might otherwise be marginalized or overlooked? How can we pull up a chair for those students, sites, teachers, and ideas that have been underrepresented at our CWPA table?

CWPA 2015 Call for Proposals
July 12-19, 2015
The University of Cincinnati Composition Program invites proposals for the fourth annual interdisciplinary graduate student conference to be held at the University of Cincinnati on Saturday, April 6, 2013. Our emphasis this year focuses on being undisciplined: breaking down walls, bending rules, and questioning the rigid structure of our fields. In every discipline, divisions and gaps are present and are in fact necessary to generate innovation and creative thinking.
Submit a Proposal for WPA 2011: Frameworks for Success
In the midst of our busy everyday lives, sometimes it’s challenging to find a quiet place to contemplate with friends our directions and opportunities. It can be especially daunting to find time to reflect on the successful features of our courses and programs. We hope that the 2011 CWPA conference will offer opportunities to share current successes and plan for future ones.
CWPA is eager to welcome the voices of people who participate in "writing program administration" writ large and who engage in myriad ways in the work associated with it. This could include work with writing centers; multiple sections or instructors of writing courses; work with community writing programs; course and program assessment; considering how to effectively make connections with others in the classroom, on campus, and beyond; or any other work that is related to writing instruction or program direction.
