Webinars provide a space to share experiences, ideas, strategies, and questions about online writing centers (OWCs).

Event Details

  • Presenter: Clarissa J. Walker
  • Title: Story Culture Live: Homegrown Storytelling as Actionable Anti-Racism Work
  • Hosting Organization: Online Writing Centers Association

On Wednesday, August 24th at 1 p.m., Clarissa J. Walker will present “Story Culture Live: Homegrown Storytelling as Actionable Anti-Racism Work.” Clarissa will introduce the components of the SCL framework: Agency, Kinship, Tensions, and Identification and offer anecdotal examples from her Story Culture Live podcast to illustrate the framework in use. Finally, Clarissa will lead a group activity that applies these actionable anti-racism principles to writing tutor-client sessions.

ASL Interpretation and Recording

We work with Morr Interpreting to provide American Sign Language (ASL) interpreters in each webinar. Webinars are recorded, given edited closed captions, and shared in our Event Archive up to 2 weeks after the event date.

Guidelines for Participating

Webinars are currently held in a Zoom Pro room. Participation is open to everyone, including not-yet OWCA members. To ensure our interpreters are visible and can translate without auditory or visual distractions, we ask that participants keep their audio and video turned off during the event. Participants are welcome to ask questions and contribute in the chat.


This event will be recorded, and the recording will be available to the public.
