Services for Students

Individual Appointments

We invite all students to one-on-one conversations about a specific writing project, including honors theses and job/school applications; sustained instruction on different aspects of the writing process; ESL instruction;  writing counseling to address mental obstacles to effective writing;  and both mentoring and instruction in creative writing.  Read more about the types of appointments we offer. Appointments are available with professional writing instructors, Sunday through Friday.  Students must sign up for an appointment using our online scheduler.

Writing Workshops

Group discussions of different aspects of the writing process.  Read about our current schedule of workshops; some topics repeat a few times a year, some are directed at thesis writers, ESL writers, or first year students.  We require participants to reserve a spot online, as space is limited.

Thesis Support

We offer guidance, support, and feedback from the very beginning to the triumphant end.  We offer:

  • workshops designed for thesis writers on getting started, organizing your research, and revising your work
  • a Thesis Retreat during vacation breaks where writers learn about--and practice--good habits for productive writing
  • individual appointments to discuss organization, time management strategies, individual chapters, and other aspects of the thesis writing process.
  • and for Juniors considering a thesis for next year, "Thesis Confidential," a panel discussion in April where seniors who have finished a thesis share honest advice about the process.
