Students come to the Writing Center to talk about writing assignments and essays throughout their four years at Pingree. Whether students seek an opportunity to merely discuss how they might approach an assignment, to make final revisions, or for help with their college application essays, they find that as they become more involved with their writing, they become better critical readers, thinkers, and writers who can clearly articulate their ideas. Students who frequent the Writing Center learn to become advocates for their self-expression as they embrace revision and ultimately find personal success.
Through 1-on-1 or small group conferences, student writers learn to talk through their ideas in order to clearly communicate with their readers. Whether the focus is on brainstorming, structuring an essay, incorporating evidence, or processing feedback on essays and research papers, conferences further enable students to reflect on the writing process and learn strategies to become more critical readers and analytical writers.
