    The SWCA 2021 conference scheduled to take place in Memphis has officially been postponed to 2022. In Spring 2021, the SWCA board will host a virtual conference so we can still do some valuable work together as an organization. More information to come this Fall.

    SWCA Members,

    We hope you’re all doing well. The SWCA CARE program (Center Acknowledgment & Recognition of Excellence) continues to support the outstanding writing center work taking place throughout our region and beyond—this work is even more important now in these challenging times! To learn more, check out the SWCA CARE webpage.

    The SWCA-CARE program will host summer webinars that offer SWCA members more insight into the certification program. Each webinar will be hosted online, via video. The webinars will focus on the basic information that you can use to get started (or finish!) your certification application. In addition, facilitators will be prepared to answer questions you might have regarding the application process or your specific questions. Certified centers are eligible to apply for an innovation grant of $250.

    We hope you’ll join members of SWCA-CARE for one of the July webinars. Sign up here! 

    SWCA CARE co-chairs, Candis Bond & Joy Bracewell

    Proposals for TuColla-VA are now due by July 20, 2020.

    On Saturday, Oct. 3rd, the SWCA-VA plans to hold its first tutor collaboration, TuColla-VA! We’re inviting tutors—individually, in pairs, in small groups—to present to their peers. The conference will be held at Piedmont Virginia Community College in Charlottesville. You can read about the conference in the Call for Proposals.

    While we had planned a small fee [$5/tutor; $10/director], we have waived conference fees this year in recognition that this may be a tough financial year for many of us. Lunch will be provided. Proposals can be submitted here and are due July 20 (revised date).
