Writing Project

The Writing Project is a writing-across-the-curriculum program that offers student writers a chance to talk through their ideas with a peer writing assistant. These guided conversations lead to better learning, thinking, and writing.

The Writing Project is based on these premises:

• writing clearly about a subject helps you know it;
• writers need feedback from readers;
• peers can give especially helpful feedback because their own experience as students gives them a firm understanding of the needs of fellow writers.

Through the Writing Project, students in any discipline work with peer Writing Assistants to improve their writing process and strengthen their writing. Writing Assistants work with students in selected courses, drop-in workshops, and semester- or year-long partnerships.
