Student Writing Center Service Learning Project
The Mentoring Writers course covers so much information, I think my head might explode from all the information. I'm sure this feeling is intensified by my eagerness to be an immediate expert of all the information we're being presented with. I put this course off 'till my last semester, while I built up my confidence. In hindsight, I wonder if I would have benefited from taking it sooner. I never would have guessed I'd learn so much about my own writing process by exploring strategies on how to mentor, and by actually mentoring, other writers. In fact, I didn't even know I had a writing process. I think people, especially myself, often do things--even things they do well--instinctively. When you actually learn what's behind that instinct, you have the ability to apply your skills more proficiently. That's how it works for me, anyway.
