The Center for Writing Across the Curriculum offers a quarter-credit course for students looking to improve their writing in any discipline at Saint Mary's. For graduate students, the course is Education 502 or 504. For students of Collegiate Seminar, it is SEM 005. For all other students, it is COMM 190: Writing Circles. 

These Writing Circles meet once a week for an hour, and usually have three to five students. Writing Advisers guide students through several steps in the writing process, through collaborative discussion and workshopping:

  • Organization
  • Quote Integration
  • Grammar
  • Citations
  • Outlines
  • Revisions


1) Log onto GaelXpress and register for Education 502 or 504; Seminar 005; or Communication 190: Writing Circles.

2) Go to the Center for Writing in Dante 202, and select a weekly Circle hour.
