From 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.
