Developing as a Writer

Writing Partners Program
The Writing Partners program offers first-year students and senior thesis writers the opportunity to have a regular meeting about work in progress with a sophomore, junior or senior who works as a trained writing consultant at the Writing Center. You will keep the same partner for the semester so that she is able to understand your writing process, your writing goals, and your learning style.

Writing Partners might use their time together in a number of ways: to review writing assignments and to strategize ways to approach them; to talk out ideas; to work on drafts; to revise and copy edit; to develop style and voice; to discuss readings and to figure out how to use them effectively in writing, and to exchange papers to discover the interesting things each partner is writing about.

A writing partnership is not an additional, graded course. Your commitment to the program will be about an hour a week for 10 weeks. For more information, contact the Writing Center director at thewritingcenter@BMC.
