  • Please confirm your attendance, and suggest a discussion topic, by emailing Linnet Humble, ACWCA Communications Officer, at writingcentre@stu.ca by end of day Friday, September 22.
  • Rooms at Cambridge Suites will be held until Monday, September 18; rooms will be held at Hampton Inn until Friday, September 22.

Tentative Schedule

Our meeting will take place over two days:

Friday, September 29, 2pm-5pm
Saturday, September 30, 9:45am-1pm

We would be happy to have you attend one or both of these days.

At this time we are taking suggestions for discussion topics. If there is a topic of interest to you related to writing centre programming, administration, training, ethics, etc., please propose it in your RSVP. At the meeting, we’d ask you to introduce the topic and kick off a 45-minute discussion. For previous meeting agendas, see our Past Events webpage.


A block of rooms is on hold under the name “ACWCA” at the Hampton Inn by Hilton Sydney in Membertou and at the Cambridge Suites Hotel on the Sydney waterfront. Both are a 10-15 minute drive from the CBU campus. Tammy has booked the blocks for the nights of September 28-30 in case some of us will be traveling the days before/after the conference. The Hampton’s room rate is $125/night, and the Cambridge’s is $129/night. Both include parking and breakfast. The Hampton is holding rooms until end of day September 22.
