Build exceptional writing skills
The ability to write well is a skill prized in almost all walks of life. Expressing yourself clearly is crucial to professional success.
Perimeter College tutors can help you develop your writing abilities, no matter where you feel stuck. Online tutors will not proofread or “correct” your paper, but we can help you organize your thoughts, develop a thesis statement, start your research, format and cite sources and polish your final product. And, while the tutors sleep, online resources are available 24/7 to answer your questions.
You’re not limited to online help, though: All Perimeter College students are welcome to drop into one of the five Perimeter College Learning and Tutoring Centers for face-to-face, one-on-one help from experienced, professional tutors.

The Decatur Writers' Group
Meetings are free and open to the public and generally held 11 a.m.-1 p.m. the second and fourth Fridays of each month in the Learning and Tutoring Center at the Decatur Campus.
For information about the Decatur Writers’ Group, contact Constance Britt Whitehurst by email or call her at 678-891-2579.
The Writers' Circle
At the sessions, writers read from works in progress and offer critiques for every stage of the writing process, from nurturing an idea into gestation to achieving its publication. To broaden and enhance the writing experience, the group also hosts guest professionals such as editors, instructors, and published authors. Please read the history of the Writers’ Circle for details about how this great group has evolved.
The Writers’ Circle meets the first and third Friday of each month in Building N-LRC on the Dunwoody Campus from 1-3 p.m. in room 3100. Bring eight copies of up to five, double-spaced pages (any genre) for constructive feedback, or just come to listen and get writing support and inspiration. Gelia Dolcimascolo, writing tutor at Perimeter College, Dunwoody Campus, serves as group facilitator. Call 770-274-5243 or e-mail [email protected] for information.
