SWCA - Virginia

The Virginia chapter of the SWCA, founded in June 2013, is a collaborative group of writing, communication, and learning center support administrators from across the state. Members share resources about tutoring and teaching writing with the purpose of advancing our professional development. We meet twice annually, typically in early June and September/October. Coordinators from high schools, community colleges, and public and private colleges and universities are welcome at our meetings. There is no cost to attend, and lunch is included.

Our state representative is Lori Jacobson, Director of the Writing Resources Center at William & Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia. She has been attending SWCA-VA meetings since June 2016. She can be reached at ljacobson@wm.edu.

    SWCA-VA Tutor Collaboration Day 2021

    Proposals are now being accepted for TuColla-VA 2021, "Leaning Into Change and Healing from Crisis." TuColla-VA is the annual Tutor Collaboration Day hosted by members of the Virginia branch of the Southeastern Writing Center Association. It is a professional conference for writing center tutors; an opportunity to learn about the work being done at other writing centers; and a chance to share your own ideas and experiences. Many first-time presenters opt to present in a small group.

    We invite writing tutors, consultants, and/or fellows from any Virginia high school, college, or university to submit proposals. Proposals are due on August 1. Please share this with your colleagues! The conference, hosted by Piedmont Virginia Community College, will be held on October 2; the conference format --in-person, online, or a mixture of the two--will be finalized in June.

    View the Call for Proposals here.

    If you have any questions or comments, contact Jenny Koster, conference organizer and SWCA-VA Piedmont Region representative, jkoster@pvcc.edu

    We look forward to hearing from writing tutors from around the state!
