The Writing Workshop is Officially Open for the Semester!

spongebob-essay-memeFrom Ford Fellow Gabe Borelli ’16:

Writing is hard. Sometimes we make mistakes. But whether you like it, love it, or hate it, writing is a part of life here at Wes. And sometimes it’s hard to get our ideas into just the shape we want them.

But fear not! Professor Meg Furniss Weisberg and I have just the solution! We’re excited to announce that the Writing Workshop has officially re-opened its doors as of Monday, September 12th.

At the Writing Workshop a staff of trained peer tutors is available to meet with you at every stage of the writing process. You can meet with a tutor to discuss ideas for an upcoming assignment, edit a rough draft of a paper, or review a professor’s comments on completed work. Everyone is welcome and all services are free. Make an appointment through your E-portfolio (click on “Writing Workshop”) or stop by during drop-in hours. One-on-one appointment slots last 45 minutes (though you do not have to use the whole time period), and all Workshop Tutors will be taking drop-in students in the event that there are un-booked appointments when you decide to drop in.

If you have any questions, please contact Ford Fellow Gabriel Borelli at (860) 685-2440 or writingworks(at)wesleyan(dot)edu.

Wesleyan Mock Trial Info Session

tom-cruise-a-few-good-menZenzele Price ’18 asks if you’re the next yung hotshot lawyer like this guy to the right:

Want an excuse to suit up and travel around the East Coast this school year? Have you ever wanted to knock a table over while screaming OBJECTION, YOUR HONOR? Do you keep a scrapbook of Hillary Clinton’s pantsuits in your Hope Chest? Do you enjoy acting, writing, attention, judgement, road trips, crippling competition jitters, practicing speeches in the mirror, winning, sometimes not winning, fact patterns, bow ties, arguing, HIGH INTENSITY SITUATIONS, thinking on your feet, being-over-caffeinated and under-prepared, and/or devoting yourself body and soul to the letter of made-up law?

If any of the above applies to you, then come to the mock trial info session THIS SATURDAY! Come for the fictional case, stay for the very real friendships, tournaments, and pantsuits.

Date: Saturday, September 17
Time: 2-3 PM
Place: PAC 001
