Quaker Writing Center (QWC) supports all Wilmington College writers throughout in the writing process. We are dedicated to helping students to become more effective and confident writers. We embrace Wilmington College’s core values of Diversity, Excellence, Integrity, Peace and Social Justice, Respect for All Persons, and Service and Civic Engagement to form an inclusive and constructive environment for all members of the WC community. Appointments can be scheduled on Acuity.
Writing Tutors prioritize giving writer’s feedback “global concerns” including:
Although some students do come to the QWC with questions concerning grammar and mechanics, please understand that editing and proofreading are not the primary concerns for the writing consultants. Writing assistants are tried to focus on global concerns and patterns of error. The writing assistants will provide students with the skills and strategies to recognize and resolve lower order concerns (e.g., punctuation, subject-verb agreement, fused syntax, ambiguous pronouns, comma splices, etc.).
Monday-Thursday | 7 to 9 p.m.
Sunday | Zoom by appointment
For assistance on your papers during other times, please schedule an appointment with a Writing Assistant at the bottom of this page.
Supplemental instruction is a group study session led by an experienced peer. SI Leaders will have earned an A or B in the courses they serve. SI Sessions are interactive, collaborative, and a great way to get to know people in your classes and go over material covered in class. SI Leaders prepare activities, lead discussions, and more to help students engage with course material and prepare for exams. SI sessions are once a week and generally in the evening hours.
Are you interested in becoming a tutor, SI Leader, or Writing Assistant? We are always accepting applications from current Wilmington College students. Interested applicants will submit a resume, responses to supplemental questions, and faculty references. Those interested in writing center work must also provide a writing sample, which should be a paper written for a class within the previous or current semester. Students must have earned an A or B in the course to be a tutor or SI Leader and have a 3.0 or higher cumulative GPA. To apply, please visit Handshake.
