Molly Hamilton, writing specialist in the Lindenwood University Writing Center, and Allison Cundiff-Reed, Lindenwood University adjunct instructor of English, both attended conferences on Saturday, Feb. 22, where they gave presentations.
Hamilton attended the Gateway Writing Center Association (GWCA) conference at St. Louis Community College – Meramec, where she presented “Tips for Making Your Tutoring Sessions More Accessible for Everyone.”
The GWCA provides opportunities for undergraduate and graduate student tutors to present at, as well as attend, a quality conference for a low cost. This was the second annual writing center tutor conference. The theme was “Access for All.” Writing Center staff members Laura Reilly, Stefanie Hammond, Gerred Zingale, and Susan Edele also attended.
Cundiff-Reed presented at the Women’s and Gender Studies Conference at Truman State University, where she read poems from her two books, Otherings and Just to See How It Feels.
The readings were part of a panel discussion led by Dr. Monica Barron, professor of English at Truman State University. Proceeds from Cundiff-Reed’s books go to Youth In Need, a St. Louis charity that serves displaced and LGBTQ youths.
