"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.
