    • Consider how the session disrupts common ideas about writing centers, celebrates stories, and/or reimagines and realizes the work of writing centers
    • Engage the idea/method of story and storytelling
    • Describe the moves you will make in the proposed session and how they will engage the audience. Include how you'll forefront accessibility into this session.

    • How does your proposal engage the ideas and methods of storytelling in the center?
    • What approach to storytelling will you use? Why will you use it? How does it help?
