Welcome to the International Writing Centers Association!

The International Writing Centers Association, a National Council of Teachers of English affiliate, was founded in 1983. IWCA fosters the development of writing center directors, tutors, and staff by sponsoring events, publications, and other professional activities; by encouraging scholarship connected to writing center-related fields; and by providing an international forum for writing center concerns.

If you work in a writing center or study writing centers, we hope that you’ll join IWCA. Membership rates are affordable. Members are eligible to apply for our grants, join our mentor matching, make a nomination for our awards, register for our events, serve on the IWCA board, and post to the IWCA job board.

The IWCA is led by the IWCA Board and has seventeen affiliate groups. If you’re new to writing center scholarship and work, be sure to visit our resources page.
