The Reginald S. Tickner Writing Center

Gilman is among the fortunate few high schools in the United States to offer writing center resource to its students. Since 1993, the Reginald S. Tickner Writing Center has served our community by conducting one-on-one essay consultations, coordinating the A.J. Downs Writers-at-Work Series and other literary events, and hosting a writer-in-residence. Our mission centers around helping students compose their very best essays for history, English, and religion courses, while also work-shopping short stories, poetry, and college application essays.

The Writing Center consists of two permanent English faculty members in addition to the Tickner Writing Fellow and roughly 40 extensively trained student Writing Consultants. These talented students offer their time and expertise toward the improvement of their peers' writing. The Writing Center helps Gilman students compose their very best essays for history, English and religion courses, while also work-shopping short stories, poetry, and college application essays.
