The Wagner Writing Center

Starting with the Fall 2015 semester, the School is pleased to offer an expanded array of writing-specific activities in order to support and promote writing excellence among all of its students. These include: additional non-credit writing courses, increased access to writing tutors (both in-person and online) and a series of topic-specific lectures and workshops.

Writing Tutors

The School provides writing tutors free of charge to assist students, in person or online, with their writing assignments. The tutors have experience with and are knowledgeable about public policy-specific formats and can assist students at any point in their writing process—from initial concept brainstorming and mid-paper writer’s block, to first draft clarity and coherence checks and final draft line edits. Tutors can be contacted via wagner.writingtutors@nyu.edu.
