In October 2021, we interviewed Joe Essid and Brian McTague on the edited collection Writing Centers at the Center of Change, published by Routledge in September 2021. Our conversation focused on change in the context of writing centers and what that means for writing center professionals. We hope you’ll enjoy it!

“It happens either you change - you have to make a change in response to external forces, or the change is forced upon you.” - Joe Essid; “It’s always by nature that writing centers are always in a state of flux, you know? Constantly changing. Sometimes for the better, sometimes for the worse, not as often for the worse. But we wanted to build on that and see if we could connect that to these individual changes that we’ve seen at different universities and colleagues.” -- Brian McTague
