More Seats at the Table: Radical Inclusion in Writing Programs
Baltimore, Maryland @ The Baltimore Marriott Waterfront Hotel
Workshop: July 21-24, 2019
Institutes: July 25, 2019
Conference: July 25-28, 2019

Writing happens all around us—frequently in traditional college settings, but equally frequently in places (and with people) we might not ordinarily think about. If we turned our collective gaze to those non-traditional sites, students, faculty, and methods, what might we see? What writing programs currently exist that are understudied or marginalized in some way—for example, community-college programs, prison writing programs, community and adult-education writing programs, immigrant-focused and second-language programs, basic-writing programs? Within our college settings, how are writing programs serving populations that might otherwise be marginalized or overlooked? How can we pull up a chair for those students, sites, teachers, and ideas that have been underrepresented at our CWPA table?
