The UNC Charlotte Conference on Writing Studies

Since 2014, the UNC Charlotte Conference on Writing Studies has been a space where scholars from secondary, two-year and four-year colleges, and collaborative partners have come together to discuss the research and teaching of composition, from traditional writing to new media. Welcome to our community. You’ll find expert scholars and teachers eager for you to join us.

We have partnered with The Carolinas Writing Program Administrators ( Carolinas WPA) to co-host a joint conference in February 2021.

We are extremely excited about this new partnership and the new interactions this partnership will bring.

Please watch this space over the coming months for more information, a CFP and more about the 2021 UNC Charlotte on Writing Studies and the Carolinas WPA's Meeting  in the Middle.

 See you in February!
