IWAC 2020 Now Accepting Proposals

  • Sep 3, 2019

The Association for Writing Across the Curriculum, the conference directors, and the conference advisory board are pleased to announce the call for proposals for the 2020 International Writing Across the Curriculum Conference. The conference will be held June 3rd through 6th at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado.

This conference marks the 50th anniversary of the first WAC seminar, which was led by Barbara Walvoord at Central College in the 1969-1970 academic year. We look forward to marking this important anniversary with sessions that address the broad categories of celebrating successes, recognizing challenges, offering critique, and advancing innovation. We seek your help in creating a rich set of presentations, roundtables, workshops, and teaching demonstrations and hope that you will consider spending time with us in the foothills of the beautiful (especially in June) Rocky Mountains.

You can learn more about the conference at https://iwac.colostate.edu. You can submit proposals at https://proposals.colostate.edu. The deadline for proposals is Monday evening, October 14th, 2019.
