Meet Our Writing Assistants

Writing assistants are highly competent, experienced writers who will read and respond to work in progress — helping writers to brainstorm topics, to structure their papers, to use resources well, to plan for revision and to find answers to questions about grammar, style and documentation formats. Writing assistants don’t just “fix” papers; instead, they work alongside students, helping them not only to write better papers, but also to become better writers.
