"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.
