Welcome to the Sixteenth IWAC Conference

WAC for Transitions: The Next 50 Years

We are excited to announce that the Sixteenth International Writing Across the Curriculum Conference will be held in June 2023 at Clemson University in Clemson, South Carolina. It will take place June 14 through June 17, 2023.  IWAC 2023

According to Marty Townsend, IWAC is a biennial conference for scholars from the United States and abroad to gather together and continue conversations around how writing and language impact student learning, with a strong emphasis on second-language learners.

You can review our call for proposals now, and registration will open in November 2022. The conference will offer both in-person and virtual attendance options.

Competitive grants will be made available for faculty members in part-time and contingent positions as well as for graduate and undergraduate students. Information will be released at a later date.

We are excited to have the opportunity to gather once again as a community to consider the past, present, and future of the WAC movement.
