Community Outreach

Since 2007, the TWP Writing Studio has participated in several community outreach projects in Durham. Our volunteers are Writing Studio consultants, both graduate and undergraduate students. Our current community project is a pilot community writing center site at the Emily K Center.

Past projects have included in-service teacher training at Riverside High School and Durham School of the Arts (DSA), one-on-one consulting with students in DSA's "Academic Literacy" course, in-class workshops and handout development at Riverside, consulting support for the Durham Public Library's youth writers' program ("Write On!"), and the training of undergraduate mentors to work with students at Githens and Rogers-Herr middle schools in the Science Writers' Investigative Field Trips (SWIFT) program.
