Why join MWCA?

MWCA membership provides you with a powerful source of support for your own scholarship, administrative work, and teaching/tutoring as well as a way to connect with colleagues within the region. As an administrator, you can do more for students, yourself, and your writing center through your contacts with the MWCA via our newsletters, the regional conferences, and our website. As an undergraduate or graduate student tutoring in a writing center, you can find opportunities to meet other tutors in your region, contribute to the research on writing centers through conference presentations, and apply for student travel and research scholarships. Through your membership, you’ll keep in touch with the field and establish friendships with other writing center folks throughout region.
