This year’s conference theme, “Occupational Hazards: Writing Center Labor, Self-Care, and Reflection,” focuses on a wide range of topics including wellness in the writing center, writing center as labor site, writing center best practices, writing center history (local, regional, national, international), training and professional development, as well as assessment and the changing face of writing center scholarship. ECWCA will feature two keynotes and an additional day of presentations that will run through the afternoon of Sunday, March 25th.
