SSW Writing Assistance
Strong writing and communication skills are essential to your academic success and to your professional career. We offer workshops, resources, and individual assistance to help you improve your skills and confidence, supporting the mission of The School of Social Work to prepare students for advanced social work practice and lifelong professional growth and development.
I'm Betsy Williams, Writing Skills/Study Skills Coordinator at SSW. I can help you with papers and other writing tasks like presentations and eportfolios.
I offer individual appointments; just email me to schedule.
What to expect at your appointment.
I have created this website for your convenience, and continue to add content. My goal here is not to be exhaustive. (If you wanted to find everything, you'd search Google.) This site provides links to a very few excellent resources, to help you quickly find what you need.
SSW Career Services can also help you with your resume, cover letter, goal statement and more. Email us for an appointment, or just drop by to learn more.
I have a BA in History and German Studies from Williams College, an MA and ABD in American Culture from the University of Michigan, and an MFA in Writing from the Solstice MFA Program of Pine Manor College.
In previous roles at U-M, I have taught composition, argumentative writing, and business communication, and have provided library reference and instruction. I'm not a social worker, but I speak social work well.
