International Writing Centers Week
International Writing Centers Week

10-16 February 2013

In 2006 during a query of how to heighten the awareness of writing centers, the International Writing Centers Association (IWCA), an affiliate of the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) founded in 1983, joined forces to create International Writing Centers Week. This annual event affords writing center professionals the perfect time to bring awareness of the work that is accomplished in writing centers all over the world.

February 10-16, 2013, is International Writing Centers Week, and the Ink Spot Academic Center for Writing will be celebrating by hosting Writing Workshops throughout the week in the W114 Classroom.  Stop by and sign in to AccuTrack to receive a free MVC promotional item, write on our walls, have a free writing consultation and/or use our computers. At The Ink Spot, our goal is not for better papers, but to help you become a better writer!

Please visit The Ink Spot (W114) for more information about the Academic Center for Writing, including how to make an appointment with a writing specialist or participating in a Writing Workshop, or visit us online at http://www.mountainviewcollege.edu/Academics/InstructionalSupport/.
