Want a Writing Mentor?

thumbnailCALYMHMFThe Writing Mentor Program is accepting applications!

Have you ever wanted a personal tutor and editor, someone who would meet with you privately to help with your writing?  If you are selected to participate in the Writing Mentor program, you will meet every week throughout the semester with a student writing mentor.  Your writing mentor will help you with papers for all your courses as well as with general questions about your writing, whether you need advice about generating ideas, structuring your essay, grammar issues, or time management.

We invite you to apply. We plan to select some first-year students who are not yet experienced in essay writing and others who are capable writers already.  We also welcome all ESL students. Upperclass students with special needs may also apply.

We look forward to hearing from you. You can find the electronic application at:  http://www.wesleyan.edu/writing/workshop/mentorapp.html

This is a relatively new program with limited funding so we cannot guarantee that all applicants will be paired with a mentor.  Please note that if you participate in the Writing Mentor program, you are making a commitment to meet with your mentor regularly.
