The writing center is here for you during remote learning. We have two remote options—one, a Zoom session with a tutor, happens in real time. The second option is to receive written feedback from a tutor on your piece. When you sign up using the link above, please specify in the "description" box whether you'd prefer ZOOM or WRITTEN FEEDBACK. Then, you'll be contacted via email about next steps.
When a student writer comes into the writing center, the student editor greets the writer and starts a conversation about the assignment, working to identify the writer's concerns and priorities for the session. We ask that the student writer please bring the assignment sheet/guidelines for the piece he/she would like to work on. In the session itself, the student writer and the student editor work together to navigate the process of writing and revision.
We work with students of all ages. We see students from virtually all disciplines. We serve both inexperienced and experienced student writers, offering an audience for and response to their written work.
Editors are hired on the basis of faculty recommendations, writing samples, and personal interviews. They receive extensive training before they begin tutoring.
