WE SUPPORT CALTECH WRITERS

The HWC offers Caltech writers individualized support and feedback on their works in progress at any stage of the writing process. Our team of professional and peer tutors can also connect writers with high quality, vetted resources that help them understand new writing tasks and meet their communication goals. Additionally, we can work with instructors and options to support their teaching of academic writing at both undergraduate and graduate levels.

We work with writers in all academic disciplines. We support writing across many academic genres, including abstracts, proposals, research papers, argument-driven essays, statements of purpose, research proposals, and slide decks/presentations. Our conversations with writers address the inherent intellectual challenges of the writing process, such as getting started, understanding feedback, and undertaking revision, as well as the emotional challenges writing may entail, such as feeling overwhelmed, frustrated, or confused. Overall, our customized support bolsters writers' knowledge and confidence so that they can successfully share their ideas with others.
