The Writing Walk-in Service (WWIS) opened a new outpost in room 160 Mann Library. The WWIS is a free service available to everyone on campus for nearly any kind of writing project: applications, presentations, lab reports, essays, papers, and more. Tutors (trained undergraduate and graduate students) can help address questions about the writing process or give assistance with particular writing assignments.
Mann is one of six WWIS locations on campus, including Olin and Uris Libraries, as well as Robert Purcell, Carol Tatkon and Rockefeller Hall. According to WWIS Director Tracy Carrick, “Olin has been a longtime fixture and has always been our busiest location, particularly for non first-year students”. Since many students come to the library to work on written assignments or get research help at the reference desk, having the WWIS in the same building makes it easy for students to get writing help at the same time. This semester the WWIS hopes to be even more convenient to students, faculty and staff working on the Ag quad with their new office in Mann rm 160 open on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 7-10pm. “Student study in a library, and our mission is to not be a writing center in the traditional sense, but rather to move out of our comfort center to go where students are, in order to support them as best we can,” says Carrick.
Hours, locations and more details about the Walk-in Writing Service is available on their website.
