Call for Proposals

The Southern California Writing Centers Association invites submissions for our 2022 Online Tutor Showcase. Instead of an in-person conference, the showcase will launch on this website on Saturday, April 9, 2022. Its theme is “Re-entry: Reclaiming and Reimagining the Writing Center.”

As writing centers reenter familiar spaces and contexts, the changes of the last two years become even more apparent. These changes raise both familiar and new questions. Proposals might be inspired by (but are not limited to) the following:

  • What has changed upon re-entering the writing center?
  • Who uses the writing center, or who doesn’t use the writing center?
  • Who is the writing center for, and how do we know we’re serving them?
  • What does a reimagined writing center look like, and how do we justify this reimagining?

Given the digital nature of the Tutor Showcase, successful proposals will not only address the theme, “Re-entry: Reclaiming and Reimagining the Writing Center”, but also how the final submission will make the most of its digital format. Final submissions may be audio/video-based, interactive web-based, or text-based works. Descriptions and links to 2021 works can be found here.
