BECOME A WRITING MENTOR

Writing Mentors are undergraduate or graduate students embedded in a Writing Intensive course. 


Writing Mentors are undergraduate or graduate students embedded in a Writing Intensive course. If undergraduate students are interested in serving as a Writing Mentor, they should plan to enroll in ENGL 3875: Peer Tutoring (Writing Intensive) during the spring semester. Successful completion of this course is a requirement for undergraduates applying to be Writing Mentors. Graduate students interested in being Writing Mentors must first apply to be a Writing Consultant in the UWC, and complete a semester of work along with specific workshops and orientations to serve as a Writing Mentor the following semester or year.

As part of ENGL 3875, we will look at some historical writing center research as well as more recent conceptions of writing work to understand and answer, "what is a writing center?". Beyond looking at writing center research, we will focus on ways to help you learn strategies to help student writers in either a writing center context or a writing mentor context. The goal of the course is to help students work with writers and improve their own writing skills.

Meet Our Mentors for Spring 2016

Meet Ashley

I am a graduate student in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders: Speech-Language Pathology. I completed my undergraduate studies here at ECU as well.  Throughout my time as a Pirate, I have been introduced to numerous writing styles, from creative to scientific. As my career path is scientifically focused, I am most comfortable using scientific writing and APA format. I have contributed to a scientific journal article accepted for publication in the online databases, as well as written research projects of my own. My goal, as a writing mentor, is to guide students in their writing process and help it become second nature to them.
