Office Hours

NEXT AVAILABLE: Please contact Stephanie Landers to inquire about an appointment with John Weeren.

John S. Weeren is founding director of Princeton Writes, a program designed to enhance the practical communication skills of our University community. Through classes, tutorials, and other forms of support, as well as an interactive website (, Princeton Writes is committed to fostering a culture that values the written word and uses it effectively in the workplace and other non-academic settings. Launched in 2013, this program traces its beginnings to a class John designed for the Office of Human Resources’ Management Development Certificate Program while serving as President Shirley M. Tilghman’s speechwriter. The popularity of this class and those that followed confirmed the need for a University-wide resource of this kind, and at the end of President Tilghman’s tenure, John made Princeton Writes his full-time focus.

All appointments must be scheduled through Princeton's Web Appointment Scheduling System. Any inquiries may be sent to Stephanie Landers at or call (609) 258-3979.
