If you’re working on multiple papers, a master’s thesis, dissertation, or other extended writing project throughout the semester, a Writing Mentorship may be a good fit for you so that you can work with the same instructor on a regular basis (usually every week or every other week). For the Fall 2020 semester, Writing Mentorships will be held entirely online through Virtual Meetings or Written Feedback.
If you are interested in a Fall 2020 Writing Mentorship, please fill out an interest form. Wednesday, September 9 at 11:59 PM is the priority deadline for submitting this form. Students who submit the form by this date will receive a response by Wednesday, September 16 from the Writing Center letting them know whether or not they have been matched with a mentor. Interest forms submitted after September 9 will be considered on a rolling basis. Most Writing Mentorships will begin in either week three or four of the semester.
If you have any questions about Writing Mentorships, please email Lisa Marvel Johnson at email@example.com.
Testimonials from students who have had a Writing Mentorship:
“The most effective aspect of the mentorship included receiving guidance on setting up the questions of the chapter and ensuring that I focus on weaving the argument throughout the paper. It was also very helpful to have a weekly check-in (which required meeting goals for each session). This program is probably the best program that I’ve found for writing dissertations. I honestly have no idea where I would be right now without it. Not only have I made significant progress on my dissertation since I started this program six months ago but I have also become much more confident about sharing my research with others and with reading aloud my work. I went into this program with hope to get some feedback on my chapters but I have gained a lot more.”
“It was a wonderful semester and I had great progress. To be honest, when I started my mentorship I never thought I would be able to accomplish so much like I did. I finish my entire literature review (50 pages), my introduction, chapter 5, and part of chapter 3 in only 2 months of mentorship!!!!”
