The Council of Writing Program Administrators’ 2017 Conference, held at the UT Conference Center and Hilton Hotel in downtown Knoxville, Tennessee, is hosted by The University of Tennessee and the Council Writing Program Administrators.



The 2017 conference theme is Solving Problems Together: Agency and Advocacy in an Age of Austerity.

As always, while participating in these stimulating conversations, we encourage you to have fun with your fellow WPAs. We also invite you to bring your families and to extend your stay in the Smoky Mountains. The Greater Knoxville area features museums, historic sites, cultural and sporting events, and parks and trails. Visitors can drive to the Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg within an hour.

Join us July 16-23, 2017, for the Council’s annual Workshop, Institutes, and Conference!
