Writing Center

Adams Library students

The Writing Center, located in the lower level in Adams Library, is an informal, comfortable space in which writers can talk about their writing concerns with people (the tutors) who are willing to listen, share, and respond. We believe that what writers need most is an informed audience of readers as well as active discussion about how writing happens. Thus, the tutoring appointment consists of reading, writing, and discussion. The goal of these writing conversations is not necessarily to perfect a given paper so much as it is to help students learn about their processes as they work through the writing assigned in their classes. People who use the Writing Center on a regular basis usually develop a heightened awareness of their writing process, discover a variety of strategies for working through their papers, and develop stronger pieces of writing.
