WAC Graduate Organization (WAC-GO)

The Writing Across the Curriculum Graduate Organization (WAC-GO) seeks to increase mentoring to and support for graduate students with an interest in Writing Across the Curriculum research, program administration, or teaching. This informal organization works closely with other WAC-related entities to promote graduate student scholarship, seek out funding and support for graduate student research activities, and connect graduate students with cross-institutional research, administrative, and teaching mentors.

To join WAC-GO, email wacgo10@gmail.com with the subject "Join WAC-GO." Include your name, standing, and institution.

4/6/18: nextGEN listserv has launched!

NextGEN provides graduate students with a space to network, collaborate, share knowledge, and engage in critical, supportive, and thought-provoking interdisciplinary writing and rhetoric studies conversations on both a national and international level. More specifically, nextGEN offers these conversations in a space that is moderated by, and produced for, graduate students.

The purpose of this space is to create a safe(r) environment for graduate student conversation; however, anyone is welcome to join! The start-up team has drafted a policy statement that we will adhere to in continuing to monitor and sustain the listserv.

3/18/18: Call for 4C18 Reflections

For our April newsletter, we would love to compile some short reflections from your 4C18 experience. These 100-150 word reflections might:

  • share advice with graduate students considering going to CCCC next year
  • provide an overview of one of your favorite sessions you attended
  • reflect on what you learned about this discipline more generally
  • consider the presence of WAC scholarship across the conference 

If you're interested in contributing a short reflection, simply email wacgo10@gmail.com with your reflection (or your idea for a reflection) by April 13! You should also include your name, program/standing, and university.
