Kirkland's 2022-23 Writing Tutors: Kevin Holden, Katilau Mbindyo

Kirkland's Writing Team coordinates programming to help students develop their writing skills and manage projects like the senior thesis.

We host Writing AccounTABLE, sessions for you to write in the quiet company of others. Whether you're drafting a response paper, making headway on your novel, or tackling a thesis chapter, a little writerly solidarity makes the process more enjoyable! The schedule for Fall 2020 Writing Accountable Sessions (hosted on Zoom) will be posted here, and circulated over the House email list. We hope you'll join us for one or more sessions!
