On Thursday afternoon (November 5, 2015), before the official start of the conference, NCPTW will offer a shuttled psychogeography tour of at least four writing centers around the Salt Lake Valley that serve distinct populations: the SLCC Community Writing Center, Westminster’s community writing center Write Here, the Westminster College Writing Center, and the SLCC Student Writing Center. This tour will explore the impact of place on our writing centers. Place not only includes geographic location, but also the socio-economic and culture environment which surround a writing center. Throughout the tour, participants will reflect on how writing centers are shaped by their place in the community. As a reflective practice, participants will document experiences based on the Mapping Salt Lake City project, a community-created archive of Salt Lake City’s neighborhoods and people through art, critical and creative literature, personal maps and multi-media projects.
Space is limited. Registration for the Writing Center Psychogeography Tour is required. You may register for the tour when you register for the conference.
