Registration FAQs

What is the IWCA Collaborative @ CCCC?

The Collaborative @ CCCC is an independent, annual IWCA event separate from the CCCC program. The event represents IWCA’s effort to respond to difficult financial circumstances, to reduce conflicts between spring IWCA conferences and CCCC, to strengthen writing center presence in conjunction with CCCC, and to encourage strong participation in regional conferences.

What makes the Collaborative special?

The Collaborative focuses on providing an interactive, informal, and invigorating day for all comers. In place of paper presentations and panels, sessions take the form of interactive roundtable discussions, hands-on workshops, writing circles, and more.

When and where is the Collaborative held?

This year the event will take place from 8 am to 7 pm on Wednesday, March 21, 2012 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, across from the landmark Gateway Arch and 0.6 miles from the CCCC convention location.
