The College of Lake County Writing Center organized a number of events to commemorate International Writing Centers Week, February 10 – 15, 2020.  This week was created by the International Writing Centers Association (IWCA) back in 2016 to promote the work of writing centers and writing center tutors.

CLC writing tutors staffed promotional tables on Student Street on the Monday and Tuesday of IWC Week—handing out information about the writing center and upcoming events like the Night against Procrastination as well as raffle tickets. On Monday of IWC Week, the theme was “Share your Favorite Song Lyric or Quote” to get a raffle ticket while to earn a raffle ticket on Tuesday, students were encouraged to write the name of someone who inspired them on a heart, which tutors then posted on a display behind the table.

The winner of the  International Writing Centers Week – Promotional Table raffle was Luidmyla Nievierova.

During International Writing Centers Week, each writing center location had an open house on with treats and information.  In addition, each campus writing center had a raffle where every time a student worked with a tutor during the week, they earned a ticket.
