Writing Center

Writing Center
The Writing Center is home of an array of writing services and activities available to all Hartwick students.

We offer ENGL 101: Writing Tutorial, a two-credit, pre-composition course for students placed at WL1 in the Writing Competency Program. We also offer tutorial and editorial help with student writing by appointment and on a walk-in basis. The Writing Center serves as a meeting place for the Writing Underground (student club) and Sigma Tau Delta (English honor society).

Any student who needs help with writing for classes or with any writing project is welcome to meet with one of our trained and pre-professional student tutors. Just call or stop in to set up an appointment to work on writing in courses ranging from basic composition to senior seminars and projects, or on application essays for employment and graduate school. You may also drop in for help, but a tutor might not be available immediately.

We recommend calling or emailing to make an appointment. You are also welcome to email questions about grammar, style, and form to the Writing Center at wcenter@hartwick.edu. Please write your questions in the body of the message, and do not send whole papers or attachments. A Writing Center tutor will answer your questions during our hours of operation.

If you would like a whole paper to be reviewed by a tutor, please make an appointment to come in person. Our tutors follow the criteria and use the checklist outlined in the Writing Competency Handbook.
