The Writing Studio

Welcome! The Writing Studio is here to support student writers and promote the writing of all members of the Montserrat community. We offer free tutoring and feedback on any aspect of the writing process: understanding assignments; formulating stories, scripts, and poems; developing drafts; incorporating research; revising; and learning how to edit work. The Writing Studio staff are artists, writers, faculty, and peer tutors who are invested in the conversation, practice, and discovery that happens for creative writers, storytellers, and critical thinkers. We provide a space for writers to talk through and develop their own ideas. 

We offer in-person appointments, small groups, virtual meetings, and drop-in hours during the fall and spring semesters. We encourage students to visit during any part of the writing process, whether they have questions about getting started, just a few notes or questions, or a completed draft. Students can schedule weekly, regular appointments for the semester or sign up as needed. Appointments can be made via Picktime.

In addition to help with writing, tutors can offer assistance with:

  • Publication and Grant Proposals
  • Presentations, Public Speaking and Critique Preparation 
  • Time Management and Study Techniques
  • Source Documentation (MLA/APA)
  • Artist and Project Statements
  • Close Reading and Annotating
