Consultants periodically get to go to writing Center conferences. We can go to one just for the experience and then we can go to more if we are presenting. I recently went to the Eastern Central Writing Center Association (ECWCA) conference and presented with the rest of the Website team (the Koalas) in good old Clarion, Pennsylvania.
After a lovely five and a half hour drive, we arrived in a beautiful rainy Pennsylvania and then had some delicious pizza… well some people had salad with fries on top. The presentations started bright and early Friday morning with poster presentations. The koalas presented at two and we were pretty awesome if I may say so myself. As a panel we discussed the website itself, the content, and social media. I specifically talked about the Consultant Diaries and why I chose to write them and how I go about doing so. Overall, it was a good experience that again showed me a different aspect of consulting at our Writing Center.
