EWC Will Offer Distance Tutoring

important-announcement

Due to Emory University’s transition to distance learning for the remainder of Spring 2020, the Emory Writing Center’s Atlanta campus location is closed. The Writing Center will offer distance tutoring via Zoom conferences beginning Monday, March 23, 2020. For more information about this development, please visit our website.


Please Stay Home If You Are Sick

no-germs

In an effort to keep Emory Writing Center tutors and visitors healthy, we ask that you stay home if you are ill and/or have a fever. If Writing Center tutors notice that you are sick, they may ask you to go home and reschedule your appointment. Please reschedule your appointment after you have been fever-free for at least 24 hours.

Emory University recommends that our community take the following steps to prevent the spread of germs:

  • Use hand sanitizer routinely (at least 60% alcohol) and wash your hands frequently with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds.
  • Cover your cough and sneezes with your sleeve or a tissue.
  • Use a face mask only if you are ill (not necessary when you are well). All ill students with fever and cough will be masked prior to entering Student Health Services.
  • Stay at home if you are ill, especially if you have a fever. Resume regular routines when you are fever free for 24 hours without fever reducing medications.
  • For environmental hygiene, use bleach wipes and wipe down all commonly touched surfaces.
  • As COVID-19 mimics the flu, it is not too late to get your flu shot to limit your risk of having a similar illness.

These and other measures can be reviewed here.

Emory University’s corona virus updates can be found here.

Weekly Writing Group Open to All LGS Students

handwriting

In Fall 2019, we began co-hosting a well-received weekly writing group with the LGS English Language Support Program, so we’ll continue this spring. The group meets for a two hour block each week: Tuesdays from noon to 2pm in Woodruff Library 214, beginning January 21st. For the first hour, we write quietly, using the Pomodoro method. Those who can stay for a second hour keep writing or discuss their writing with a member of our staff. Come every week or just when you can. No RSVP needed.


Extended Hours

finish

The end of the semester is almost here! Emory Writing Center will open one hour early (at 10 AM) on Wed. 12/4, Thu. 12/5, Mon. 12/9, and Tue. 12/10 to meet the extra demand for tutoring appointments as we near the end of the semester.

Check WCOnline for tutor availability and to make an appointment, as we can only see walk-in clients on a limited basis.

Please be reminded that we cannot tutor take home exams without the written consent of your instructor. Visit our website for a full list of our policies.

Exciting Changes at the Writing Center

change

The Emory Writing Center is now open for Fall 2019. When writers visit us in our new location (Callaway Memorial Center, north building, room N-111), they will notice that we have implemented several changes. Our new hours are Sunday 12pm-8pm, Monday-Thursday 11am-8pm, and Friday 11am-5pm. We have a much larger staff, including English Language Learner (ELL) Specialists. Our ELL tutors have completed extra training enabling them to specialize in tutoring writers for whom English is not a first language.

Though we are experiencing many great changes, the Writing Center remains the same at our core. Our staff still includes talented undergraduate and graduate tutors from a range of disciplines who are eager to work with all writers at all stages of the composing process. So go to emory.mywconline.com and make an appointment to visit our new location today!
