Southeastern Writing Center Association 2007 Conference
"Static and (dis)Harmony: Tuning into Writing Centers in the Music City"

February 8-10, 2007
DoubleTree Hotel Downtown - Nashville, TN
Keynote Speaker-Elizabeth Boquet

Music City, U.S.A., serves as the perfect location to discuss the issues of
noise, sound, static, and silence in the writing center. Home of the Grand
Ole Opry, Nashville serves as the center of country music but also supports
jazz, blues, bluegrass, and gospel. Songwriters, publishers, producers,
artists all come to Nashville to learn the business, whether in school,
hands-on in the studio, one-on-one with mentors, or even through observation
in the local bars.
