The Writing Center

The Writing Center at King's is staffed by a director and twelve peer tutors who provide one-on-one conferences to any student seeking to improve his or her writing. This service is available to students in any course, and tutors are available to help with any type of writing. Tutors can offer suggestions and advice at all stages of the writing process, from understanding the requirements of an assignment to developing ideas and approaches, organizing material, and writing clearly, coherently, and correctly.

Writing center tutors do not tell students what to say or how to say it. They do not write papers for students, and they are not a proofreading service. Their goal is to help writers reach their own goals and to provide whatever assistance they can to make the task of writing more rewarding and the results more effective.

LOCATION AND HOURS

The Writing Center is located on the ground floor of the Mulligan Building, near the post office.  We open every day at 8:00 a.m.  Our hours for spring 2014 are

A Wrtiting Center tutor is also available every Sunday in the lobby of Holy Cross Hall from 2 to 8 and in the lobby of Esseff Hall from 4 to 8.

You never need an appointment; just stop in whenever you need assistance.
