MAWCA is dedicated to providing support, networking opportunities, and professional development to those working in/interested in writing centers across the region. We do this through our annual conference, our writers' and new directors' summer retreats, and through funding regional development events focused on professional development or social/networking events.
We encourage you to consider hosting an event this year. Any and all events that benefit members of MAWCA will be considered. We budget a total of $1,500 each year for regional events. Please indicate the amount you need to host your event. For example, $250 to $500 might be reasonable to host a regional meeting to cover the expense of food and materials. Or $100 might be reasonable to host a social. Funds are disbursed on a refund basis.
If you are awarded funding, within one week please submit a 1-2 page report that can be used on MAWCA's webpage and social media. Include a description of your event, a list of participants, photos with captions (if you can but be sure to secure permission prior to submitting), and any other appropriate information. Future funding is contingent on MAWCA receiving your report.
Please also email the President to indicate a submission has been made since the system does not automatically notify the board.
