The National Conference on Peer Tutoring in Writing (NCPTW) promotes the teaching of writing through collaborative learning. The annual NCPTW conference offers peer tutors the opportunity to contribute in professional and scholarly ways to the larger writing center community by sharing and presenting research at national and international conferences.
The theme of “migration,” in all senses, including the movement of populations both human and non- human, voluntary or involuntary, and with an eye to environmental sustainability, invites peer tutors and scholars alike to not only consider their own experiences and materialities of writing, but to explore the reciprocal effects of writers, objects, and spaces.

Dr. Aja Y. Martinez, Assistant Professor of Writing and Rhetoric at Syracuse University, has influenced our course designs, writing center workshops, and the #NCPTW18 conference theme. We’re excited and honored to welcome her as our keynote speaker!
We’ve seen Dr. Michelle Miley, Assistant Professor of English and Director of the Writing Center at Montana State University, present before, and each time, we’ve been walked away impressed and informed. We can’t wait to see what she has in store for her featured workshop!
