The Writing Center Presents: Cultivating Voice Spring 2015!

Students interested in becoming a peer tutor at the Writing Center are required to take a two-credit course, Cultivating Voice: A Writing Tutor's Craft, offered every Spring. If you are interested in registering for this class, please submit your Cultivating Voice Spring 2015 application form (pdf) at the Writing Center front desk by Friday, March 6th. You can obtain a form by downloading and printing it from this link, or you can pick one up from the Center.

Cultivating Voice combines readings, reflective writing, seminar, and a practicum to prepare students to become peer tutors in the Writing Centers. In seminar, students explore tutoring theories, examine the role of a peer tutor and develop effective tutoring practices. In the practicum, students will observe peer tutoring and graduate to supervised tutoring. The course also will address racial and social justice in serving and working with a diverse group. Students considering graduate school in related fields like education, creative writing, and literature will benefit from this training. Please refer to the Academic Catalog for the current academic year for more information. 

Welcome to Winter Quarter 2015 at the Writing Center!

Whatever level of experience or confidence you have with writing, we invite you to come to the Center to explore and strengthen your writing process. Our tutors are here to work with you on your writing and to support you in navigating the different types of writing you encounter at Evergreen.
