I feel so fortunate to work with writers at the CEW. I get to meet so many new people every day. I have the opportunity learn about writers’ lives, cultures, interests, and disciplines, which can be so different from my own. One of my favorite aspects of working with a writer is watching them develop over time. Often, writers will come in before beginning their papers, and we discuss some of their preliminary ideas. After a few appointments writers leave with an essay they are proud of, and I am so proud of writers who gain confidence in their work and ideas. I am so grateful that I can be a part of this process.
