TO THE CLASS of 2013:

We invite you to work with a WRITING MENTOR this semester!  Have you ever wanted a personal tutor and editor, someone who would meet with you privately to help with your writing? 

thumbnailCAM7YPH6In the Writing Mentor program you will meet every week throughout the semester with a trained student writing mentor. Your 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, or time management. We welcome all applicants.

We look forward to hearing from you. You can find the electronic application at:

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.

Best Wishes,  Charlie Weiss and Oriana Korol, Ford Fellows in the Writing Program, 103 and 104 Downey House, (860) 685-2440
