On Saturday, April 27, 2013, from 10 a.m. to noon, the Marian University Writing Center will be at the Eagle Branch of the Indianapolis Public Library to assist people with their writing.
The event is open to the public and people can bring essays, cover letters, and resumes to receive personalized help from writing tutors.
“Our hope is that this will be the first of many workshop sessions hosted within the community. After meeting with neighborhood leaders and parents of school children, it is clear that the demand exists for more community literacy events, and we're excited at the prospect of playing an active role in providing them,” said Mark Latta, assistant director of Marian University’s Writing Center.
During the event, the following tutors will be available to meet individually with writers of all ages: students, Michael Baumann and Olivia Gehrich; Gay Lynn Crossley, Ph.D., associate professor of English and director of writing; Cliff Oldham, director of the Marian University Writing Center; and Mark Latta, assistant director of the Marian University Writing Center.
“There is an abundant amount of talent and intellect within the Marian University Writing Center, as well as a strong desire to offer literacy and writing support to as many people as possible. When the Writing Center began examining ways to increase both the types of writing to assist with, and the means of support offered, it seemed obvious to us that we should answer Marian University's mission to become actively engaged with the communities surrounding our campus,” said Latta.
