WPA Breakfast

Coming Together: WPA Conference, Breakfast, and Shared Framework for Success in Postsecondary Writing

As WPAs, we know how important it is to build connections with others in our programs, on our campuses, and with our colleagues. CWPA has four great opportunities to make new connections and reconnect with old friends coming up.

CWPA Network Breakfast Table Topics!

Thanks to everyone who submitted input for topics at the WPA 2010 Network Breakfast. Based on your input, we've created the following table topics. WPAmbassadors will be on hand at the Seelbach to guide breakfast eaters to tables. Arrive early for your first choice!

CWPA 2010 - Let us help with your new year's resolutions!

It’s the new year and the new term, a time when some take the opportunity to make and act on resolutions. It might be, in fact, that CWPA can help with some of our members’ resolutions with some fabulous opportunities. Maybe you’ve decided to:

CWPA (Network) Breakfast at CCCC - A New Twist on an Old Favorite

Perhaps, as the semester winds down, you are already thinking about next term, about spring, about CCCC and the WPA breakfast at CCCC. This year’s event, which is open for registration, brings a new twist. As part of CWPA’s efforts to facilitate connections and conversation, we’re introducing themed tables at the breakfast. "What themes," you ask? You tell us!

2010 CWPA Network Breakfast at CCCC

Registration for the WPA Breakfast is now closed so that we can get numbers to the Seelbach.

Thursday, March 18 * Seelbach Hotel, Louisville * Doors open at 6am

As the title might suggest, on Thursday, March 18th, the Council of Writing Program Administrators is bringing you a new twist on an old favorite. Of course, the WPA Breakfast still has the things you love: a ritualistic kick off to the CCCC! A chance to see old friends and make new ones! A colorful variety of handouts to keep you informed on WPA doings! Melon slices!

Mid-Term Report

Just as the mid-point of the semester seems like a good time to look back on the work we do with students, it seems like a useful moment to reflect on CWPA’s work this Fall 2009 term.

Based on input that we collected through WPA Directions at the 2009 summer conference, we’ve started or will start several new initiatives. These include:
