Writing Mentorships will return in Fall 2023. Meanwhile, we invite you to consider:
- In-Person Main Center Meetings. You can book an in-person meeting at our Main Center in Helen C. White Hall up to two weeks in advance with any of our available instructors. If you’d like to meet with the same instructor each week, this is often possible and this is a great way for an instructor to get to know your writing and process.
- Virtual Meetings. If you’d rather meet with an instructor virtually, check out our virtual meeting option. These are very similar to in-person Main Center meetings except that you’ll meet with your instructor through our online platform, WCOnline.
- Written Feedback. If you’d prefer to get written comments from an instructor, you can schedule appointments for Written Feedback. Just like with Main Center and Virtual Meetings, you can book appointments for Written Feedback up to two weeks in advance and it is often possible to book appointments with the same instructor every week.
- Writing Groups. If you’re looking for the support of a mentorship, you may be interested in our Writing Groups, which provide space and time to write in community with others.

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!!!!”
