The MWC is now closed for the fall term, though we do have two upcoming workshops on how to succeed on timed writing (SEE BELOW!). We'll re-open for the spring on Monday, 23 January. Check back frequently if you don't see appointments available for booking - new appointments for the upcoming week are usually released the Friday before. If everything is full for the day you want to come in, try walking in and/or click on the clock icons next to individual days on the schedule to join a Waiting List!

THE BASICS

The Mounger Writing Center (MWC) is on the second floor of Jefferson Hall (NE Wing). In Spring 2017, we'll be open weekdays, 1300-1600, and Sunday-Thursday evenings, 1930-2200. (We're closed on holidays, over holiday weekends, and on modified-schedule days.) 

We offer regular one-on-one peer consultations and periodic group workshops to all cadets working on assignments for all academic courses. That means anything from writing essays in the humanities and social sciences to crafting technical reports, executive summaries, and poster presentations for courses in math, science, and engineering. Bring in your writing for oral presentations and PowerPoints, too! For more information, check out the FAQ on our webpage!

We can also talk with you about writing you're doing out of personal interests or to pursue professional opportunities (like personal statements for grad school). Cadet Writing Fellows are trained to assist you with at any stage of the writing process, whether clarifying an initial focus, developing a thesis, structuring an argument, integrating and documenting sources, or revising and polishing a draft. We won't edit or proofread papers, but we will help you learn to identify and rework patterns of error or awkwardness. Our mission is to engage you in sustained, focused conversations that help you to express your ideas more clearly and to become skilled readers and revisers of your own writing.
