The New (or Newer) Writing Center Directors’ Retreat will be held on June 2-3, 2019 at Pendle Hill ( in Wallingford, PA. Holly Ryan runs this dynamic and interactive retreat where you'll come away with materials and strategies and build a support network of other directors in the Mid-Atlantic region.

This two-day event is an opportunity for new/newer writing center directors or graduate students in administrative roles to focus on the nuts and bolts of writing center administration while networking with other local writing center professionals.  The retreat provides space and time for participants to gather, discuss, support, brainstorm, collaborate, and engage with other individuals who are similarly positioned. 

Retreat topics focus on concerns or challenges we face when running a writing center.  There will also be open time for participants to bring forward individual concerns for the group to help troubleshoot. In addition to whole group discussion and activities, participants will have breakout time to develop their own personalized administrative approaches.

The total cost for the 2019 retreat is $160, which covers your registration fee, room rate, and three meals for this two day event. Space is limited to fifteen participants. MAWCA is open to working with participants to make your attendance affordable; please contact to request financial assistance.
