Share:

The Pearce Center for Professional Communication has announced that Clemson University will host the 16th International Writing Across the Curriculum (IWAC) conference, a hybrid event, scheduled for June 14-17, 2023. The conference will include keynote speakers, panels, and roundtables addressing writing theory, practice, and pedagogy in all its forms—digital, visual, multimodal, and plain language. Clemson faculty, staff, and students are encouraged to attend or present. The conference is accepting proposals until September 15, 2022.

Associate Professor of English Cameron Bushnell, director of the Pearce Center for Professional Communication.

“In its simplest form, Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) recognizes and supports the use of writing in any and every way and in every and any course offered at a learning institution,” explained Associate Professor Cameron Bushnell, director of the Pearce Center for Professional Communication and this year’s conference director.

The conference is expected to draw over 350 participants to Clemson from across the country and around the globe, Bushnell said.

“Interesting to Clemson faculty will be the large number of writing professionals who focus on writing in the disciplines,” she said. “Clemson faculty involved in efforts on our campus to organize writing programs for staff and community, to offer STEM communication courses, to arrange mentorship programs for new professionals in healthcare, to name just a few, could have discussion topics suitable for this conference.”

“Early-bird” registration for the conference opens November 28, 2022, followed by regular registration opening on January 12, 2023. Late registration begins April 15 with a final registration deadline of May 14.

Registration discounts will be offered to Clemson faculty, staff, and students while supplies last. For more information about the program, discounts, sponsorships, and proposal submissions, visit the conference website, or email iwac2023@gmail.com. Updates will also be posted on the conference website and on Facebook and Instagram.
