Writing Commons

All student writers can benefit from the feedback and support the Writing Commons provides. Visit us to see how we can help you!

  

"Maybe in a perfect world, all writers would have their own ready auditor... who would not only listen but draw them out, ask them questions they would not think to ask themselves.  A writing center is an institutional response to this need."

- Stephen M. North
"The Idea of a Writing Center." College English 46.5 (1984): 433-46.
