Deliverables/What We Do:
The Writing Centre operates as a democratic space where each student is welcomed and encouraged to become better writers. Through one-on-one tutoring sessions, students are guided through the intricate process of writing. Emphasis is laid on helping students understand conceptual issues, as well as grammatical problems in their papers. The Writing Centre at Srishti helps students understand assignments, brainstorm, organize, focus, and develop their written works in order to become effective writers.
We conduct Re-Visit Workshops at the start of each Academic year to introduce students to the various aspects of writing. This two week workshop takes the students on a myriad tour of the tools of writing, whether it be flash fiction, technical writing, lyrical verse or report writing.
We provide workshops on plagiarism and creative commons for different batches several times during the academic year. Individual tutoring sessions are available on a weekly basis depending on the available slots.
