Welcome to the Kenyon College Writing Center.
Our staff is comprised of talented students with an interest in teaching writing to others; we call them Writing Consultants. They major, minor, and have interests in almost every department on campus. Their job is to conduct individual conferences with writers. We allocate about half an hour for a conference, but we're glad to meet with you as many times as you find necessary before your deadline.
A conference with a Writing Consultant can help you further your understanding of a topic and find ways to better articulate the ideas. Writing Consultants will work with you to cultivate improvement by helping you recognize any patterns of error and asking questions about your existing choices for argument, organization, development, and style on the draft or in the notes you make available at the time of the conference.
You can walk in during our open hours or schedule an appointment with your Writing Liaison. Please note that walk-in shifts change on the hour. For a list of consultants and their majors, see Meet a Kenyon Writer.
We are located on the ground floor of Olin Library, in room 131, accessible through the left-hand door to Olin Auditorium.
