Blurred Boundaries: The ECWCA Journal
Over several years, writing center administrators and consultants have theorized ways to assist clients in their navigation of academic, creative, personal, business, and other types of writing, while simultaneously counteracting scholarship that suggest writing centers are an unethical pursuit. These efforts by dedicated writing center scholars and administrators have provided the foundation upon which writing centers — as a whole — stand: the overall relaxed environment of writing centers, the focus on higher order concerns, and making better writers, not better writing. In fact, these foci are so ingrained within writing center theory, pedagogy, and praxis, that they are rarely interrogated.
The East Central Writing Center Association (ECWCA) is seeking proposals on related to this year’s conference theme on “Writing Center Labor, Self-Care, and Reflection” for it’s inaugural edition of the e-journal Blurring Boundaries: The ECWCA Journal.
