Wells College Writing Center in the Ruth M. Hagedorn Learning Commons
The Wells College Writing Center, located in the Ruth M. Hagedorn Learning Commons, aims to help students, and the college community as a whole, understand how to improve their writing for specific assignments and courses, as well as in larger contexts. We are here to help with all stages of the writing process, from brainstorming, to outlining, to revision, as well as with all types of writing. Our goal is to engage in collaborative sessions where we address and work through common and recurring oversights in areas such as structure, flow, style, clarity, content, citations, and grammar, as well as to think critically about the decisions we make as writers. Our purpose is to help anyone learn techniques to improve their writing in a variety of disciplines and genres.
