The Writing Center

Lauritzen Hall, Whitman College


The Writing Center offers student writers free one-on-one conferences with experienced fellow writers trained to consult on assignments in any discipline. Writing Center Fellows offer advice on every aspect of the writing process, from brainstorming to developing a thesis, structuring an argument, and revising a draft. Students may also sign up for special oral presentation conferences, designed to help translate written materials into an effective talk.

Juniors and seniors working on independent research projects, such as the JP and Senior Thesis, may work with a graduate Writing Center Fellow in extended appointments.
