Each year, MTSU’s Virginia Peck Composition Series event brings the middle Tennessee community together, specifically by inviting different kinds of institutions (including area secondary school teachers, community college instructors, graduate students, and faculty at four-year institutions, both public and private) to attend a research presentation and workshops led by a leading name in the field.

In 2016, we extended this invitation to the southeastern region, and we changed the schedule to include a MidSouth WPA meeting in the afternoon.

Spring 2021 Virginia Peck Symposium on Research and Writing

Please don’t forget to register for the Peck Symposium on Research and Writing. In past years we have gathered regional teacher-scholars to middle Tennessee to build community around a workshop and keynote on research and writing from a celebrated speaker. Because the best part ofPeck is the opportunity to develop community with regional partners, instead of a more traditional digital meetup we will group interested participants in parties of four and invite them to mail writing, research, or a related artifact to the other members of their group. You might think of this as “pen pal” meets yet another pandemic-induced “innovation.”

If you’d like to be part of this mailing happening, please fill out this form by Friday, February 5, 2021.We will email you information for your pen pals and mail you materials in mid-February.

If you have any questions, please email Amie Whittemore: amie [dot] whittemore[at] mtsu [dot] edu.
