Wells College Writing Center

Wells College Writing Center The official page for the Writing Center, Tutoring Center, and Math Clinic at Wells College. Come check out our brand new space in the Ruth M. Hagedorn Learning Commons in Long Library!

The newly constructed Writing Center was made possible by a grant from the Ruth M. Hagedorn Foundation and in memory of Kathryn Ziegenfus Mueller '22. The space is multi-purpose so in addition to the Writing Center, it also houses the Peer Tutoring program at the Wells College and provide a quiet yet cozy place for students to work and relax.

Wells College Visiting Writers Series

go go go!

The reading is TODAY at 6PM. Get to AER to here some fabulous work like the poem below.

Demolition

We tore the cabinets out. The sound

of an animal vomiting.

We pulled the faucet from the wall

& suddenly I thought

of your body. How a knife went

in it, how a knife

was yanked out. There was only one place

where you could’ve died and we didn’t

know where it was

until now. Next to a parking lot

on a sidewalk in Denver, everyone

can only die in one place and you

died there. The sound of teeth

chattering. You died

with your jacket on; we didn’t get that

jacket back—it was too

heavy with your

leaving it. We didn’t get to see

where the knife cut the clothes. We

swung a sledgehammer at the wall.

The sound of coughing. The sound

of a dog being kicked.

Where your clothes were cut

by the knife seems like

a secret. Even the dead want

their privacy, I guess. How dead

you are now. How private.
