For many of us, the writing center field has been an inclusive community: students and newcomers are welcomed to participate in the same forums as veteran administrators. However, one area often ignored is whether our stories and methods of storytelling are equally accessible to all members of our community. This presentation will overview and critique some of the accessibility issues present in our storytelling methods, including our conferences, publications, and consulting practice. This presentation will give attendees specific practices for increasing accessibility in their own presentations and helping to increase access in our field overall.
