Writing Associates

Writing Associates is a peer-tutoring program established by the English Department over a decade ago to help students in lower-division English literature classes become better writers and to introduce English majors to the profession they are considering joining.  Writing Associates are senior English majors selected for their excellence as writers and critical thinkers and trained as writing tutors.

Assigned to specific sections of lower-division English literature classes, Writing Associates are available to help students with any stage of the writing process: developing ideas, finding and supporting a strong thesis, organizing an argument, using primary and secondary sources, composing a first draft, revising and editing for style and correctness.

For information about becoming part of the Writing Associates program, contact the director, Dr. Kathleen Horton (hortonk@uoregon.edu).
