Writing Center

Improving writing skills across the curriculum

The Writing Center is a resource for all students to improve their writing and communication skills across the curriculum. We work in one-on-one conferences so students develop successful writing strategies they can then use independently in all of their courses. There is no need to sign up ahead of time; just drop in!

Drop-In Hours

After School: Monday through Thursday, 3:00 to 4:00 p.m., in Meckler Library

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. Students should arrive with a specific topic they would like to address.
