: At the upcoming CCCC's Conference in Portland: Community Writing Mentoring Workshop

Session MW.03 Community Writing Mentoring Workshop

Sponsored by the Conference on Community Writing, this workshop responds to the desires expressed by the hundreds of attendees at the first Conference on Community Writing (CCW) in October of 2015 for a hands-on opportunity for teachers, scholars, and community organizers to dialogue with and receive mentorship and feedback from senior scholars in community-based writing, which includes genres such as service-learning, community-based research, community literacy, ethnography, community publishing, advocacy, and activist writing. It also provides an opportunity to circulate and apply the best practices outlined in the revised CCCC Statement on Community-Engaged Projects in Rhetoric and Composition. The CCW will launch a national mentoring network of teachers and scholars via this workshop.
