      Purpose

      The Writing Center is located near the Alden Learning Commons in the E.S. Farley Library basement. Writing Center consultants meet with students of all disciplines to assist in every stage of the writing process, including the planning, drafting, and revision of essays. Peer consultants will work closely with student writers in the following ways:

      • Planning: consultants will go over assignments with students, helping them brainstorm, organize, and outline ideas for essays. Consultants will also advise students in effective reading and pre-writing strategies.
      • Drafting: consultants will offer advice and feedback on drafts as they are being written. They may offer feedback on thesis statements, structure, organization, and mechanics.
      • Revision: consultants will help students respond to instructors’ specific feedback and develop a solid revision strategy.
      • Research: consultants will advise students on effective research approaches (such as using the Farley Library databases and catalog).

      How to Apply:

      Please send the following materials to the Writing Center Director, Dr. Sean Kelly, by the third Friday in August:

      • Completed application form (request from Dr. Kelly);
      • A brief statement or email of support from a faculty member in your discipline (about 150-250 words);
      • A brief personal statement (about 250-500 words), including your major, year at Wilkes, your reason for wanting to become a Writing Center Peer Consultant and any special attributes that you believe make you a qualified candidate;
      • Two formal essays (not creative writing) of at least 3-4 pages;
      • Once the Writing Center Director has examined your application materials, you will be contacted for a brief, informal interview.

      Key Responsibilities
      • Consultants will conduct 30-45 minute writing consultations within the Writing Center, or via the Online Writing Center, as assigned. Consultants work 2-6 hours per week, in most cases.

Consultants are also required to attend certain workshops, events, and conference sessions sponsored by the Writing Center.
      Required Skills
      • Consultants must enroll in ENG 190, a 1-credit hour (no charge) training course, for at least two semesters (fall and spring). ENG 190 will meet on a biweekly (every other week) basis for training sessions and discussions. For English majors, this 1-credit course will count toward writing electives. For non-English majors, ENG 190 will count as an elective credit toward the 120 needed (in most programs) for graduation.
      • Consultants must maintain a GPA of at least 3.0.
      • Consultants must have completed ENG 101 and ENG 120 (or the transfer equivalent), earning at least a 3.0 or higher.
