About the Writing Center
Beginning in Autumn Quarter 2015, the College of Education Writing Center will be staffed by graduate tutors from the Odegaard Writing & Research Center (OWRC) - many of whom are College of Education students. OWRC tutors receive extensive and ongoing training and also have strong networks with other writing tutors around campus. We look forward to this productive new partnership.
The College of Education offers writing support to Education students at all levels. The Writing Center is staffed by graduate student tutors with training and experience helping students learn the skills needed for good writing.
The Writing Center is located in 207 Miller Hall (across from the elevator on the fourth floor). The phone number is (206) 685-4093.

Writing Center Services
The Writing Center can work with you to:
Answer your questions about writing
Talk through your challenges and/or worries about writing
Meet with you to discuss a particular piece of writing
Provide space and time for you to focus on your writing
Help you brainstorm ideas when you start writing
Offer reader feedback on your drafts
Connect you with (or create!) resources to help you with writing
What to expect when you come in:
You will sit down with the tutor for 45 minutes and discuss whatever you are working on. The tutor will ask questions to try and understand your goals with the writing, what the assignment is asking for, and what you’d like to focus on during the appointment. The tutor is happy to work with you wherever you are in your process: whether you’ve just gotten the assignment and haven’t written anything, or you’ve finished your third draft.
Other Writing Resources on Campus
