Writing Center

Writing workshops

Northwestern’s Writing Center is for all students in any discipline. You can visit the center for free help from an experienced and successful student writer on any writing assignment. “Go early and often” is the center’s advice for students who want to be really good writers.

Tutor other writers

“I tutor to learn from the student writers I work with,” says a Writing Center tutor—proof again that if you want to learn something well, teach it to someone. Capable writers are recommended by their professors to tutor beginning writers. They’re paid for their work, but that’s nothing compared to the priceless resume-building experience they gain.
