Announcing the 2019 UWRITE Conference!

  • In 2016, UWRITE was created to bring together our JSCC English faculty as we made changes in our composition classrooms.
  • Each year since, the professional development opportunity has evolved, and we hope this year will be no different.
  • We are excited to host this opportunity once again as an endeavor to share our thoughts, techniques, and technology for teaching composition and literature.

The 2019 UWRITE Conference will be held on Friday, June 28, 2019, at the Shelby-Hoover Campus of Jefferson State Community College.
