Mentoring for Online Writing Support

The OWC Community is piloting a mentoring program, to assist writing centers who need mentoring on designing online support services and/or moving their operations online due to the Coronavirus. Mentoring is also available to state and regional writing center associations who are looking to offer virtual participation in their conference events.

Mentors and mentees will be connected via email and can continue their conversation through any methods/technologies that work best for both parties.

To request a mentor, please email the following information to

  • Your institution/association and the populations you will be working with online (high school students, undergraduates, returning adults, etc.)
