Writing Center

Say it Loud

Whether you need help brainstorming new ideas or editing a final draft, the Writing Center can help. Our philosophy is to empower young writers and to assist them in taking ownership over their own writing as they improve through one-on-one attention.

Successful student writers transform into peer tutors, who, along with the Writing Center’s director and writing coach, meet with writers throughout the school day and into the hours of evening CQ.

They are my go-to people because they understand what I’m struggling to say in my writing—and they help me say it loud. - May Nguyen ‘14
