Teaching the Writing Process (WRIT 350) is designed for students who want to become writing tutors. It focuses on writing processes, tutoring strategies, research, style, and grammar. However, while most students who take this course are interested in being Principia writing tutors, many take it with an eye toward skills that will help them in careers or graduate school.

If you are interested in being in this year’s class, please submit a sample of your academic writing—in hard copy or as an MSWord email attachment—to course instructor Ellen Sprague in the Center for Teaching and Learning. If you have questions, please contact Ellen at ext. 5145 or
