The 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.
Writing Center is available during the academic day (8:30 a.m. - 3:15 p.m.) on the 1st Floor of the Eppley Hall of Humanities and during Closed Quarters (CQ) on the 2nd Floor of the Huffington Library. Email the Writing Center to make an appointment.
