BWC Mission Statement

The Peter J. Benelli Writing Center seeks to foster a cross-curricular,

whole-school approach to writing as a process

and strives to celebrate the endeavor for all students.

The Writing Center is a place where students can come to collaborate in the spirit of collegiality or for help with any part of the writing process - brainstorming, researching, outlining, hashing out a thesis, crafting a rough draft, polishing a final copy. Benelli Writing Center Fellows can assist student writers at any stage of the process and across disciplines. They're trained and eager to help all students with all types of writing (literary essays, poetry, non-fiction, fiction, history research papers, college essays, lab reports, contest entries).

In 1958, Peter Benelli started teaching English at Thayer, and in 1967, he became headmaster. During his 33 years at Thayer, Mr. Benelli was esteemed for his writing skills because of the many letters and notes he wrote to former students and their families. It is therefore more than fitting that Mr. Benelli's legacy at Thayer Academy should be the Writing Center - dedicated to the craft in which he has taken such a keen interest.
