Dear IW Students, 

Here are two excellent resources for your independent work! 

Colleen Writing Center 

Every writer needs a reader, and the Writing Center has a reader for every writer! The Writing Center offers Princeton writers free, one-on-one conferences with experienced fellow writers trained to respond to assignments in any discipline.

Located in Lauritzen Hall , the Writing Center welcomes all Princeton students, including: 

    * undergraduates working on essays for courses 
    * juniors and seniors working on independent research projects 
    * international students making the transition to American academic writing 
    * graduate students working on seminar papers, articles, or dissertations 
    * students writing essays for fellowships or for graduate school or job applications 
    * students crafting oral presentations. 

Writing Fellows can help with any part of the writing process: brainstorming ideas, developing a thesis, structuring an argument, or revising a draft. The goal of each conference is to develop strategies that will encourage students to become astute readers and critics of their own work. Although the Writing Center is not an editing or proofreading service, Fellows can help students learn techniques for improving sentences and checking mechanics. 
Writing Center conferences complement, but do not replace, the relationships students have with their teachers and advisors.
