The Writing Center is a free service for all students, both graduate and undergraduate, currently enrolled at Washington University in St. Louis.
We believe that engaging in a dialogue with a real person helps everyone figure out and articulate their ideas more clearly. We can help writers and speakers at any stage of the process, from brainstorming all the way through final drafts and presentations.
Our work is student-centered and collaborative. We are not affiliated with any specific class or department but instead respect and value students’ ownership of their own work and ideas. Our goal is to help students achieve their goals by strengthening and clarifying their own thinking, which helps them to strengthen and clarify their writing and speaking.
The Writing Center is the main resource on campus for writing assistance and the only writing resource open to all WashU students.
