The Writing Center

The Writing Center offers assistance to all Hampshire students interested in developing their communication skills. Because writing is important at Hampshire, this program provides a range of services from individual meetings to workshops and formal courses in writing.


Whenever possible, instructors work with ongoing writing projects, including course papers, Division II papers, or sections of Division III exams.

Depending on an individual student's writing needs, instructors address problems with starting or finishing papers and developing effective strategies for outlining, organizing, drafting, and revising.

Instructors do not proofread papers, but do their best to help students learn to correct their own grammar.

To schedule an appointment, call 413.559.5531, 413.559.5577, or 413.559.5646.

William Ryan, codirector of the Writing Program, has been at Hampshire since 1980.
