Visit the Wells College Writing Center!

Our tutors help with all stages of the writing process for a variety of projects


Where: Ruth Hagedorn Learning Commons, Long Library, 2nd Floor           

When: The Writing Center operates off of a drop-in model. You can always find an accurate schedule of our Writing Center hours for the current week here:



At a writing tutoring session, you can expect:

  • An encouraging and supportive resource to develop your writing
  • Someone to respond to your writing with questions
  • Someone to take your thinking and writing seriously
  • An active session where you are always the author of any changes to a paper


You can get assistance with:

  • Understanding the assignment
  • Getting started, planning, outlining, revising
  • Writing with audience and purpose in mind
  • Topic selection and narrowing
  • Focusing a thesis
  • Choosing credible source material
  • Integrating source material
  • Using academic citation styles such as APA, MLA, Chicago
  • Developing logical structure
  • Recognizing and resolving sentence-level problems
  • Crafting transitions and style
  • Choosing appropriate words
  • Developing presentations


Because we are here to help you develop a sustainable writing practice, we will not merely proofread or copy edit papers.
