Writing center people enjoy writing—and writing about writing, about writing centers, and about tutoring writing. That’s one reason why we’re starting a blog so that people all over the globe can interact, post comments, offer useful information, ask questions, comment on each other’s posts, tell us about conferences others might want to attend, list websites where you found information that helps you and your tutors and/or teachers, and so on. Another reason is that in most cases, writing center people are the only ones doing such work at their institution. That can be a bit lonely. So we have to reach across borders to meet each other. This blog will provide the space to do that if you read and post on it.
So we invite you to join in. You can read without registering, but if you would like to participate in the conversations (and we hope you will), you will need to register. To do that, click the login link to the right, click register, type your e-mail address and a username, and follow the emailed instructions. You can pick any username you want, so you can be as anonymous as you prefer. Your name and e-mail address will not appear on the blog unless you want them to.
We have a few posts to start us off, but we are waiting to hear from you. So join in—comment on a post, write a blog entry of your own, and start connecting with writing center professionals from around the world.
