Writing Support Colloquium

Writing Support Colloquium: "How Writing Centres Can Win Friends and Influence People"

If you work in a writing centre, teach writing, or provide general writing support, please join us at the University of Guelph for the Writing Support Colloquium, affiliated with the Canadian Writing Centres Association.

The theme of the colloquium is promoting a writing culture on campus by creating critical partnerships and relationships with writing promoters and supporters. In our various roles and contexts, how can we inspire and support our communities to think about writing less as a tool and more as a process of thinking, learning, and engaging with others? Who are our potential partners and allies in this work?

There will be plenty of opportunities to share ideas with colleagues on issues affecting writing centres and writing instructors in our region. Our keynote speaker, Dr. Jennifer Simpson, Associate Professor, Department of Drama and Speech Communication, University of Waterloo, will set the stage for discussions about promoting a writing culture on our campuses.

Lunch is included!

Registration: $15 (to be paid by invoice or in cash at the door)
