Writing is hard. Sometimes we maek mistakes. Were human.

But fear not! Ford Fellow Piers Gelly ’13 has just the solution:

We’re excited to announce that the Writing Workshop will officially re-open its doors this Sunday, September 8th!

The Writing Workshop provides trained undergraduate writing tutors who will help you with any and all aspects of writing, from brainstorming theses to reorganizing body paragraphs to figuring out which prompt to answer. One-on-one appointment slots last 45 minutes (though you do not have to use the whole time period). Our schedule for the semester is as follows:

DROP-IN: Swing by with your work, no appointment necessary!

  • Sunday – Thursday, 7-11 p.m. in Olin 106

BY APPOINTMENT: Sign up through your e-Portfolio under “Writing Workshop.”

  • Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, 1-4 p.m. in Downey House
  • Sunday – Thursday, 7-11 p.m. in SciLi 77 and the Shapiro Center

This fall we are opening a new Workshop location for freshmen:

  • Sunday – Wednesday, 7-11 p.m. in Bennet 125
