FWC in 2018-19

This year, the Farnham Writers’ Center is offering two new services:

Creative Writing Tutoring: Do you have a poem you’ve been struggling with? A short story you’d like more feedback on? A piece of narrative non-fiction that could use another set of eyes? The Writers’ Center has skilled creative writers on staff who’d love to help you out! Visit our Meet the Staff page to find a peer writing assistant who can help you with your Creative Writing coursework. 

Writing Tutoring Across Languages: Are you writing academic papers in a language besides English? The Farnham Writers’ Center has several peer writing assistants qualified to work with you on papers in languages including French, Spanish, and Chinese among others (depending on staff languages each semester). We’ll help you with essay organization, content, paragraph development, and more. To find tutors who write in non-English languages, take a look at our Meet the Staff page.
