Writing Center

Writing Center Director working with student

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

Any student who needs help with any writing project in any subject is welcome to meet with one of our trained and pre-professional student tutors. Just call or make 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.

Our tutors can help you at any stage of your project, from outlining your ideas to formatting your final draft.  They follow the criteria and use the checklist outlined in the Writing Competency Handbook.

You are also welcome to email general questions about grammar, style, and form to the Writing Center at writingcenter@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.

The Writing Center offers ENGL 101: Writing Tutorial, a two-credit, pre-composition course for students placed at WL1 in the Writing Competency Program. The Writing Center also serves as a meeting place for the Writing Underground (student club) and Sigma Tau Delta (English honor society).
