At the invitation of SWCA, the Millsaps Writing Center is conducting a research project to learn more about how writing centers in Mississippi perceive of community in their work. During the Fall 2018, writing consultants did background research and developed a literature review to inform their design of a research project that will launch this spring. In late January, every writing center in the state of Mississippi will receive an email inviting directors/administrators and consultants to participate in a survey about writing center communities. Then, our staff will conduct site visits to various centers across the state to learn more about what it means to be a writing center in Mississippi. Want us to come to your center? Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org! We look forward to sharing our preliminary findings at MSWCA March 22-23, 2019. See you then!
