In the Writing Center, upper-level Gallatin students are employed as Peer Writing Assistants (PWAs), trained to help other students at any stage of the writing process, from brainstorming about a subject, to clarifying a thesis, to organizing the structure of an essay.
In 2022-2023, the Writing Center will be offering most appointments in person at Gallatin, and some appointments online, over Zoom. To book an appointment with a PWA, select your desired time and leave a brief description of what you would like to work on. You must be logged into your NYU Gmail account to make an appointment. Appointments will take place as one-on-one meetings. Those indicated as "In Person" will take place as 50-minute meetings at 1 Washington Place, room 423. Those indicated as "Virtual" will take place as one-hour meetings over Zoom. Note that Google Calendar displays only available appointments and displays all events in the user's local time zone.
To those canceling an appointment: Please do so at least 24 hours in advance, if at all possible, so another student can take your place.
To those seeking an appointment when none are available: Please keep an eye on the calendar. Though students are encouraged to cancel at least 24 hours in advance, some last-minute cancellations are inevitable.
**The Gallatin Writing Center welcomes all Gallatin students and students taking Gallatin courses. For those who are neither Gallatin students nor enrolled in a Gallatin course, please contact the NYU Writing Center.**

Hi! I’m a junior at Gallatin concentrating in digital sociology and minoring in media, culture, and communication. I can help you out with any writing you’re working on; I’d be excited to help you out with anything relating to the social sciences, sociological theory, technology and society, (new) media studies, and literary criticism.
Hello! I’m a sophomore at Gallatin studying literature, creative writing, and global religious history. I also enjoy social sciences, particularly anthropology and psychology. As a peer tutor, I can help with all kinds of essays and creative writing, but my expertise is in humanities and prose fiction.
Hi! I'm a senior at Gallatin with a concentration in pop culture criticism and psychology. As my concentration implies, I'm a music, film, and TV connoisseur. I personally like working on creative nonfiction pieces such as personal essays and cultural criticism. However, narrative-based fiction pieces and academic essays are also pretty fun to work with.
Hello, I’m a junior at Gallatin studying financial balances and risk management. However, I promise I am not as boring as that concentration sounds. I love music, all things entertainment, fashion, and anything that involves the arts! The sort of writing I enjoy working on the most would probably be creative pieces, essays, satire/comedy, etc. I love any writing that gives you the opportunity to use a strong voice and make the reader laugh.
Hi, my name is Ariel Peritz-Means, and I am a second year student at Gallatin. My concentration is law, literature, and philosophy and I am a philosophy minor. I am particularly interested in immanent critique, which is the left Hegelian/neo-Marxist tract in critical theory. I am also interested in constitutional law and jurisprudence, and I can help with literary analysis.
