Three Cabrini students along with the coordinator of the writing center, Dr. Susan Waller, will sail through a series of seminars that will invite tutors, directors and students to explore the multiple paths and diverse directions of writing centers at the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md. on April 8.

The conference that is sponsored by the Mid-Atlantic Writing Centers Association, which is a regional affiliate of the International Writing Centers Association, will have college members coming from all along the east coast in attendance.

Waller said, “It is a different site for the conference. However, I think it will be informative and enjoyable for the students in attendance.”

Cabrini students attending the conference will attend sessions that discuss topics such as gender and authority rank in the writing center, which will be presented by the U. S. Naval Academy.

Another session students will be attending will be presented by Loyola College in Maryland, which will address civic engagement in the writing center.

Also, Waller and Patricia Dyer, of Widener University, will host an interactive workshop that explores the varied conversations that occurs within the writing center.

Waller also said that by giving students the opportunity to go to the conference, she hopes that it will encourage students to want to become more involved in the Writing Center.

MAWCA hopes to hold the conference at Eastern University next year with Cabrini College as the co-host.

Waller said, “I think the students will gain a lot from the MAWCA conference.”
