ASU Writing Centers are excellent resources for students. As a general rule, students who make a habit of visiting a writing center multiple times a semester have higher retention into their sophomore and junior years.
The ASU Composition Conference is held annually. Presentation Proposals are usually due by mid-January, and the Conference is normally held in the second half of February or first week of March.

National Day on Writing at ASU Writing Programs
The National Day on Writing is an initiative of the National Council of Teachers of English, an organization for professionals at all levels, kindergarten through college. NDoW was established “to draw attention to the remarkable variety of writing we engage in, and to help writers from all walks of life recognize how important writing is to their lives.” As part of an effort to make the work of Writing Programs visible to the rest of the campus and beyond, NDoW gives us an occasion to engage the rest of the campus in thinking and talking about writing.
