  • Virtual Meeting via Zoom
  • Hosted by the William & Mary Writing Resources Center

Our meeting topic is Wellness in the Post-Pandemic Writing Center.  Our slate of guest speakers--and opportunities for discussion--will allow us to explore the concept of wellness and its role in writing centers:

  • Kelly Crace -- "Flourishing During Burnout Conditions"
    Dr. Crace is Associate Vice President for Health & Wellness at William & Mary and Director of the Center for Mindfulness and Authentic Excellence (CMAX)

  • Nicole Emmelhainz -- "Guided Meditation in Tutor Training"
    Dr. Emmelhainz is Associate Professor of English at Christopher Newport University and Director of the Randall Writing Center
  • Peter Varga -- "Self-Efficacy and Inspiration in the Writing Center"
    Mr. Varga is a graduate student in Psychological Sciences at William & Mary and Lead Consultant in the Graduate Writing Resources Center.

Questions that will shape our agenda include: How do writing centers contribute to student wellness? How can writing centers support the wellness of tutors? How can we nurture our own wellbeing and flourish in our roles? How can wellness, broadly imagined, be incorporated into our writing center missions? How does a wellness mindset affect the role of the writing center in our various institutions?

There is no cost to attend the Directors Meeting. SWCA membership is encouraged. Please feel free to forward this message to colleagues. For more information, contact Lori Jacobson at
