On Saturday, September 29 from 10 am- 3pm, The Write From the Start Writing and Communication Center at Nova Southeastern University, and the Reading Writing Center at Florida State University are excited to host this year’s SWCA Florida Tutor Collaboration Day, generously sponsored by the Southeastern Writing Center Association, the Composition, Rhetoric, and Digital Media Master’s Program at NSU, and the English Department at FSU.
This year’s TCD will bring together tutors, directors, and writing centers across the state to network, participate in collaborative and interactive workshops, engage in professional development, build a technology toolkit, and apply for the 2019 SWCA conference. The SWCA President, Graham Stowe, will kick of the day with a virtual keynote and many sessions will be streamed live between the two locations, to make the day as collaborative as possible.
Because of the hands-on nature of the sessions, we invite participants to BYOD (bring your own device) to use throughout the day!
Get social with us for TCD! We’ll be live streaming sessions throughout the day on our SWCA Florida Facebook page. You can also find us on Social Media:

The 2018 Florida TCD will take place at the Writing and Communication Center at Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, and the Reading Writing Center at Florida State University in Tallahassee.
For people joining us at NSU, the Writing and Communication Center is in room 430 of the Alvin Sherman Library. To park at NSU, you’ll want to park at the Library & Main Student Lot. Click here for NSU’s interactive campus map.
For those joining us at FSU, the Reading Writing Center is in the Williams building, room 222-A. For directions, see FSU’s interactive campus map.
At FSU, there is an open lot (Lot 109 seen here http://campus.map.fsu.edu/index.aspx) for parking directly south and across Jefferson Ave from the Williams Building, where we’ll be based. Adjacent to that lot, to the southeast, is the St. Augustine parking deck that folks can also use if needed, although lot 109 on non-football Saturdays are usually pretty empty.
