International Writing Centers Week is an opportunity for people who work in writing centers to celebrate writing and become more aware of the important role of their individual campus/community writing centers.


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 week will be celebrated in many writing centers around the world each year.
