Writing Center

Improving writing skills across the curriculum

The Pennington Writing Center, located within Meckler Library, is an important resource to help all students improve their writing and communication skills across the curriculum. The primary focus of the Writing Center is to provide close personal attention for students to learn and develop successful writing strategies they can then use independently, in all of their courses. We offer one-on-one conferences, after-school drop-in hours, and occasional workshops to hone specific writing skills to address the various needs of students.

Drop-In Hours

Meckler Library e-classroom: Mondays-Thursdays 3:30-4:00 p.m.; Thursdays 7:30-9:30 p.m.
All members of the Pennington community are welcome to come by and receive one-on-one help with their writing in any subject. We focus mostly on addressing quality of expression, and will make suggestions about how an idea can be more purposefully explained, developed, or structured. No appointment is needed for most sessions. Students should arrive with a specific topic they would like to address. Day students may attend evening appointments by using Facetime on their iPads.
