THE BASICS

The Mounger Writing Center (MWC) is on the second floor of Jefferson Hall (NE Wing). We're open most weekdays, 1400-1600, and Sunday-Thursday evenings, 1930-2200. (We're closed on holidays, over holiday weekends, and on modified-schedule days.)

We sponsor one-on-one peer consultations, group workshops, and special events for all Cadets working on any kind of writing or communications assignment for any purpose. 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. 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. The sooner you come in, the more we can help!
