Have you ever wanted a personal editor? Someone who would meet with you privately to help you with your writing?

Your Writing Mentor will work with you on your particular writing concerns, whether you need help generating ideas, structuring your essay, improving sentence clarity and grammar, or managing your time.  As mentors and mentees meet on a weekly basis, this program is designed for students who enjoy regular collaboration.  If you participate, you will enroll in a .25 credit tutorial and have a sophomore, junior, or senior assigned to meet with you throughout the semester.

We work with students of all writing abilities and in all disciplines.  All services are free.

To apply for a writing mentor for the Fall 2018 semester, please fill out the online application here by Friday, September 14th at 9:00 AM; we will let you know by Sunday, September 16th, if we've been able to pair you with a mentor. We may have openings as the semester continues. Please contact Ford Fellow Dache Rogers at or 860-685-3125 if you have any questions or concerns. 

We look forward to working with you.
