NWCC Meeting 2016

2016 Nebraska Writing Center Consortium Meeting

The 10th annual Nebraska Writing Center Consortium Meeting will be hosted by the Central Community College, Hastings on September 24th, 2016. This year’s theme is “Exploring New Frontiers in Writing Centers” and is an opportunity for consultants to explore writing center theory, scholarship, and experience with peers outside of their institution. The NWCC meeting is also a prime opportunity to practice and refine presentations for upcoming international, national, and regional writing center conferences (IWCA, NCPTW, and MWCA).

This year’s conference will feature a panel of students and consultants/tutors who will discuss their experiences working in their local writing centers. We seek proposals from consultants/tutors and students willing to participate in this panel discussion. We invite 150-250 word proposals that speak to how their experiences in writing centers has impacted their writing and thinking and what they’d like to see from Nebraska writing centers. Proposals are due by September 9th ; send proposals via email (as Word or pdf. files) to daniellehelzer@cccneb.edu with the subject line “2016 NWCC Proposal.” Include names and contact information for all panel members. In the afternoon, we will follow an UnConference format to discuss and explore new frontiers in Nebraska writing centers.
