The Harriet W. Sheridan Center for Teaching and Learning

Writing Center

Brown's Writing Center provides individual and group writing support free of charge to any member of the Brown community. Writing Center associates assist students with all stages of the writing process, from finding a topic through drafting, revising and final editing.

The Writing Center is staffed by graduate students from a variety of academic disciplines. Staff members are experienced writers and teachers who participate in ongoing training in composition theory and practice. Associates can help writers with writer's block, audience awareness, argumentation, organization, grammar, research skills, the conventions of academic writing, English as an additional language, and issues of clarity and style.

Writing is a core goal of a Brown education, and most seniors report that their experience at Brown contributes a great deal to their development as writers. To earn the baccalaureate degree, all Brown students must demonstrate an ability to write well.
