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

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?
