NEWS FROM THE WRITING CENTER
Often at the start of Term 3, we have a lull in appointments in the Writing Center, so now is a great time to make appointments to work on improving your writing and avoiding previous issues by:
review writing challenges from Semester 1 and how to fix them
revise writing from your Semester 1 essays to avoid these same issues!
In addition, the Writing Center is pleased to announce our Semester 1 Writing Center LinK Tutor Chloe Robertston is returning, along with several volunteers from Semester 1 Honors Writing Seminar will also be available to meet with students: David Hom, Chloe Shield, and Morgan Turner!
So if you find that Writing Center appointments are full, please reach out to WB and we'll endeavor to set up appointments with one of these seniors!
Just reach out to WB via school email: email@example.com
Finally, below you'll find information about an interesting playwriting contest, sponsored by Trinity Rep in Providence. Remember, you can use the Writing Center for help with submissions for writing contests and awards.
