International Writing Centers Week is an opportunity for people who work in writing centers to celebrate writing and to spread awareness about the important roles that writing centers play in schools, on college campuses, and within the greater community.

HISTORY

The International Writing Centers Association, in response to a call from its membership, created “International Writing Centers Week” in 2006. The membership committee included Pam Childers, Michele Eodice, Clint Gardner (Chair), Gayla Keesee, Mary Arnold Schwartz, and Katherine Theriault. The week is scheduled each year around Valentine’s Day. IWCA hopes that this annual event will be celebrated in writing centers around the world .
