I understand that working with a writing mentor means a significant commitment to improving my writing. I will attend weekly meetings for one hour per week for the duration of the semester. I will be responsible for setting the agenda at these weekly meetings; that is, I realize that I am responsible for bringing and being prepared to discuss reading material, writing assignments, outlines, drafts, and/or any other course materials. By submitting this application, I am agreeing, if offered a placement with a KNIGHT WRITER, to attend and be prepared for weekly meetings, to be an active participant in my learning process, and to give my writing mentor consideration and respect.
