Connors Writing Center

The Robert J. Connors Writing Center

The Connors Writing Center is a place where all members of the UNH community—students, faculty, and staff—are welcome to discuss their writing with trained writing assistants.  Our writing assistants come from many academic backgrounds and work with students on all forms of writing during any stage in the writing process.  They are undergraduate and graduate students at UNH who are passionate about writing and who love discussing writing with others.

The Connors Writing Center Approach

The CWC believes that all writers benefit from collaboration.  Through writing conferences, we engage writers in a conversation about their writing—both the process of writing and their writing itself.  On our side of the conversation, we ask questions to prompt self-reflection, critical thinking, and inquiry.  We might also brainstorm with a writer, offer advice or suggestions, and/or model strategies for planning, drafting, and revising. 

At the Writing Center, we emphasize development of ideas and revision. Our focus is on helping writers understand assignments, understand and work within specific genres of writing, work through the writing process, articulate and meet goals for their writing, brainstorm ideas, re-think or expand upon drafts, and learn self-editing techniques.   Our ultimate goal is to help writers become comfortable with the writing process and embrace revision as a process of discovering new directions for their writing.

The Writing Center is not a remedial or editing service.  Our goal is to engage students in a collaborative learning process so that they improve holistically as writers.
