Writing Programs are physical and online spaces that help students write effectively for audiences both within and beyond the academy, develop their abilities as rhetors, and do their best work by composing and revising texts based on academic and self-sponsored literacy projects. The National Council of Writing Program Administrators (CWPA) represents teachers and researchers whose teaching and scholarship focus on intellectual and pedagogical aspects of writing programs and their administration. Its goal is to provide resources, support, and services on matters attendant to the administration of writing programs. Writing programs, for CWPA's purposes, specifically include all writing-across-the-disciplines programs, writing centers, and writing courses with multiple sections.
