SWCA Webinar Series

The Southeastern Writing Center Association (SWCA) provides synchronous, online webinars for those interested in topics related to writing center pedagogy and operations.

Join us for SWCA’s next webinar as we consider the value of writing center work in preparing students for future degrees and careers. We will discuss how writing center work can best be presented on a resume or portfolio, and will help consultants explore graduate school options and cover how to identify options and navigate the graduate program application process.

We also invite proposals for topics that would interest a variety of our region’s audiences, including writing tutors (professional, peer, and graduate), administrators, and members.

NOTE: All consultants from a center that has an institutional membership can attend paid webinars for free, but to register you will have to ask whoever controls your SWCA institutional membership account (likely, the writing center director or equivalent) to register your group and share the Zoom link with you after they receive it by email.
