Summer Writing Center

The Cornell Writing Centers and the Graduate Writing Service team up during the summer to provide tutoring services during Cornell's 6-week summer session. The Summer Writing Center supports all students and alum on any kind of writing project at any stage of the drafting process. Tutors (trained graduate students) serve as responsive listeners and readers who can address questions about the writing process or about particular pieces of writing. They can also consider questions of confidence, critical reading, analytic thought, organization and imagination, as well as help identify patterns of error at the sentence or paragraph-level.

During the 2022 summer session (June 21 - August 2), tutors are available for in-person and remote-access, synchronous online appointments.
