    • Writing Fellows will be holding drop-in hours to help SRI students write and revise their posters.  The Writing Fellows are specially trained peer tutors who work with writers in all disciplines; during the semester, they work with attached classes and staff the Writing Center on the second floor of Barnard Hall.  Six Writing Fellows on campus this summer are Science Fellows - a cohort of students that are all science majors and Writing Fellows who have been working with several science classes during the school year with lab reports and other scientific writing including Biology 1500 and Quantitative Analysis..  They are prepared to help students in all phases of the poster-writing process, from brainstorming to revision.  To meet with a Writing Fellow, sign up on this Google doc and come to the Writing Center at one of the times listed on the sheet.  Appointments are first-come, first-serve, and start this afternoon in the Writing Center.
    • SRI staff will print the drafts on letter size paper and bring them to the July 18 Poster Prep Session (see below).

      In these small groups, you will have the opportunity to practice presenting your poster to others, receive feedback, and fill out the poster checklist.
