Are you one of the 84 writing instructors with part-time or adjunct status headed to the annual Conference on College Composition and Communication (CCCC) as a Professional Equity Project (PEP) nominee? If so, we will be seeing you in Houston, Texas, on April 6-9!

Haven’t heard about PEP? Cengage Learning partnered with CCCC to give grants to adjunct instructors that help cover expenses for the annual conference, including paid registration, and a coupon for one CCCC membership.

Don’t forget to stop by Cengage Learning’s Booth 103 on Thursday morning to get your photo taken and pick up your Cengage Learning swag. When you visit with us, we’d love to hear more about your “why.” Why do you do what you do? Why are you an educator for Composition? Why is attending CCCC important to you? Why do YOU write?

We’ll also be running a social media contest throughout the duration of the conference. Pick up your “Why I Write” T-shirt, take a selfie somewhere at CCCC in your T-shirt, tweet it @CengageEngl, and include the hashtag #WhyIWrite for your chance to win $100. Prizes will be given out on both Thursday and Friday.

In addition, Cengage Learning will be offering 5-5-5 demos.  Come by Booth 103, view a 5-minute MindTap demo, fill out a 5-question survey, and get a $5 Starbucks gift cards! You can directly impact students’ lives by helping us build a product that works with your feedback at the helm. It’s that simple!

There’s still time to register! Educators can find more information here. If you are unable to attend, you can still follow the conversation at home.
