As you complete four “W” courses in the Writing Program while enrolled at Albertus, you’re encouraged to mature as a writer and view writing as a means of learning and discovery across all disciplines.

Writing Associates (WAs), our carefully selected pool of talented and trained undergraduates, can assist you with every stage of the writing process, including:

  • Prewriting/interpreting the assignment
  • Brainstorming
  • Selecting a topic
  • Planning strategies
  • Generating, clarifying and/or developing ideas
  • Organizing material
  • Documenting sources
  • Discussing elements of syntax and style
  • Revising and rewriting

While Writing Associates do not proofread, correct or edit your assignments, they help you critique your work and become a better proofreader, a more competent editor and a more confident writer.

The fall 2011 semester marks my third semester working at the Writing Center. It's difficult to summarize my total experience here thus far, suffice to say that I love my job. Working at the Writing Center means interacting with and helping students from every discipline at Albertus Magnus College. We assist the editing and development of essays, journals, case studies, papers, and virtually any writing through every step of the writing process, from the brainstorm to the finished product. Life in the Writing Center exemplifies a strong sense of community and is absolutely a rewarding part of my academic life at Albertus Magnus College. Nolan Dionne, Class of 2013.

You can become a Writing Associate (WA) if you write well and excel academically. Faculty members often nominate promising students or you may apply for a position as a Writing Associate. As a WA, you help others improve their writing while you hone your leadership, teaching and management skills and polish your own writing.
