In June of 2011, approximately twenty Boston-area writing program administrators and scholars convened to create a new professional organization: BRAWN, the Boston Rhetoric and Writing Network.
The Boston Rhetoric and Writing Network is committed to providing free and local professional development and learning opportunities to college writing instructors. There are no membership requirements for attending, but please be sure to register for events that require it.
BRAWN supports a listserv, regular professional events and social gatherings, and the BRAWN Summer Institute, held annually in May. BRAWN is currently in the process of registering as a 503(b) non-profit organization.
