8th Annual Conference on the Teaching of Writing

I received the following message about a conference on writing that will interest many in our WAC community:

Dear CUNY English Faculty and Students,

The University of Connecticut’s Freshman English Program will host its Eighth Annual Conference on the Teaching of Writing on Friday, April 6, 2013. Last year’s conference was our most successful yet, attracting over 120 attendees from more than 20 institutions for a rich program of presentations, roundtables, and panels. Our theme this year is “Collaboration and Conversation” and Dr. Judith Goleman, Associate Professor of English at University of Massachusetts Boston, author of Working Theory: Critical Composition Studies for Students & Teachers, will deliver our keynote address. 

We’ve attached a copy of our call for papers and hope you’ll consider submitting a proposal for this year’s conference. We would appreciate it if you could also distribute the CFP among your colleagues.  We welcome proposals from tutors and students that address issues pertinent to writing instruction from all disciplines and programs. The deadline for proposals is Monday, February 4. You can also find regularly updated information about this year’s conference on our website at http://freshmanenglish.uconn.edu/instructors/conference/.

We hope to see you in April!

Sincerely,
Steven Mollmann and Laura Wright

The call for papers includes many possible topics about which those working on WAC projects will have much to contribute.
