In this way, participants will be asked to consider the value in creating slow reading and writing practices to facilitate agents to more carefully consider their initial encounters with text. This encourages deep engagement with literacy practices for navigating multiple, often clashing, discourses, and helps build empathy through the work of deep, rhetorical listening.
Contemplative practices may thus allow students of writing to move from affectively-driven reactions to reflective responses. Conference Schedule and Format.

The registration deadline is Friday, February 10, Teaching and program administration is always work in progress. We constantly alter our own classroom practices, reshape our programs, and revise our research. In so doing, we must advocate for ourselves and for others, and our social justice mission is rarely far from our minds. Much of the advocacy we do stays within our institutional contexts such as when we try different teaching approaches, or argue for program resources or equitable labor practices.
Our national body, the Council of Writing Program Administrators, urges us to see advocacy as particularly necessary to focus on right now, as evident in their recent call for conference proposals on the theme of agency and advocacy in an age of austerity. This dovetails well with the focus Michelle LaFrance brought to us at Wildacres We lift up the work each of us is doing that explores classrooms and writing programs as sites of advocacy. And we offer concrete activities to move that work forward. So what are you working on now?
And how can MinM help you meet your goals for advancing your own advocacy-centered projects?

This year we focus on ways we can take action—as instructors, WPAs, advocates for students, etc. We encourage proposals that once again focus on ways we are responding to working conditions at a state, regional, or local level; however, we are especially interested in proposals that share ways change is happening within these contexts.
Projects in different stages—from manuscript-ready to collected raw data to seeds of ideas—are welcome. We ask that you identify how you will engage your Wildacres audience in helping you advance this project.
Be prepared to discuss your work without AV equipment Internet is very limited and we may not have access to projectors. We will organize small breakout groups based on proposals so those presenting can work through their questions with attendees. Michelle LaFrance from George Mason University will provide a brief keynote address and facilitate a writing workshop that helps us to further consider ways we can take action.
The format of the conference will encourage full engagement of participants from a broad variety of institutions and programs.
