Summer Institute

The 2018 IWCA Summer Institute will be held in Indianapolis, Indiana from Monday, July 16 through Friday, July 20 (with an opening event the evening of Sunday, July 15).

The Summer Institute (SI) is open to both new and experienced writing center administrators, scholars, and practitioners from universities and colleges, K-12 education, or independent writing centers. Since 2003, the SI has allowed writing center professionals to work with leaders from the field in whole-group workshops, small-group discussions, and one-on-one conversations.

The cost of registration will stay at the 2017 rate of $900/participant. The hotel cost is $164/night (plus tax); participants must stay at the conference hotel for the duration of the institute. To register, log in to the portal, or if you have never created an account, create a new account and then register. More information, theme, scholarship information, and workshop leaders will be announced soon and posted here.
