Welcome to the SWCA website!
The Southeastern Writing Center Association (SWCA) was founded in 1981 to advance literacy; to further the theoretical, practical, and political concerns of writing center professionals; and to serve as a forum for the writing concerns of students, faculty, staff, and writing professionals from both academic and nonacademic communities in the Southeastern region of the United States. A member of the International Writing Centers Association (IWCA), an NCTE Assembly, the SWCA includes in its designated region North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Kentucky, Puerto Rico, and the American Virgin Islands.

With this annual survey, IWCA continues the Writing Centers Research Project’s longitudinal research on the usage, demographics, staffing, institutional support, personnel structures and processes of writing centers across the US and world and in a variety of educational contexts. Ideally, this survey will provide peer and aspirant institutions, writing center professionals, consultants, peer tutors, or coaches comparable information against which to assess or measure themselves. This survey will also continue to document the growth and challenges that writing centers and the individuals would work there or use them.
