    Dear Colleagues,

    After much deliberation, the Southeastern Writing Center Association has decided to move the February 10-12, 2022 conference to a virtual format. The in-person conference hosted by Christian Brothers University Writing and Communications Corner will take place in 2023. The 2022 virtual SWCA conference will be sponsored by SWCA and hosted by Nova Southeastern University's Writing and Communication Center.

    Please see the updated conference CFP and note the extended deadline for proposal submissions is November 20, 2021. We hope that the move to a virtual conference will allow for a wide range of participation.

    Visit https://southeasternwritingcenter.wildapricot.org/conference for more information and submit questions about the conference or proposal queries to swca.conference@gmail.com.

    We look forward to (virtually) seeing you Feb. 2022!

    Sincerely,
    The SWCA Board
