CCCC 2016 is just a few weeks away! It’s time to start thinking about what to bring to make this a fantastic Convention experience.
Some “must haves” to help you make the most of your CCCC experience:
Your commitment to writers and writing!
Your values and passion will form a foundation for your thinking at CCCC 2016!
You’ll have lots of opportunities at CCCC 2016 to develop systematic strategies for taking action: the Taking Action Workshops, stations in the Action Hub, sessions, caucuses, SIGS, and more!
Your writing or research to make a difference!
Attend the Framing Messages Taking Action Workshop (Sessions B, E, H, J), or visit the Knowledge Shaping and Writing for Change Stations in the Action Hub to learn to frame, produce, and deliver even more effective messages about writing, writers, or issues related to writing instruction!
Bring your ideas and visit the Pitch Practicing station in the Action Hub to practice talking to audiences outside of the field! (Check out this video for examples!)
CCCC 2016 is a great opportunity to learn about new ideas, or to learn more about ideas you already have!
Over 3,500 people will attend CCCC 2016. Reach out and meet someone new!
Of course, you’ll also want to include things to make you comfortable in your travels around CCCC 2016, too:
Comfortable shoes for moving around the convention venue and Houston
A water bottle to stay hydrated
An extra tote bag for books you’ll get in the Exhibit Hall!
