Writing Program

Writing Program

The Writing Program is the hub of writing culture at Scripps. Writing Program faculty and staff members facilitate writing instruction in Core, consult with other faculty in matters of writing pedagogy, and support students in developing all their written work, including essays, senior theses, and grant or school applications. We host writing seminars and workshops in the Writing Center and at other locations on campus; we bring guest writers to campus to speak about their work with students; we administer writing awards and publish the Scripps College Journal; and we provide free individual tutoring. In all of these endeavors, we work to form a sense of community that extends beyond the classroom. Students interested in developing their writing should seek out our resources and contact us; we will work with you on every part of the writing process.
