If you’re working on multiple papers, a master’s thesis, dissertation, or other extended writing project throughout the semester, you may want to set up a more formalized writing mentorship with the same instructor every week or every other week in the Main Center or via Skype.
Our spring 2020 mentorships are full, but if you’re interested in learning more or would like to be added to the waitlist, please send an email to the Writing Center Assistant Director (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!!!!”
