The Writing Center is a free academic support service available to all members of the Brown Community. Staff associates are experienced writers and teachers who participate in ongoing training in composition and Writing Center theory and practice. In addition to holding one-on-one conferences, Writing Center Associates offer various workshops on writing for interested groups.

Writing Center conferences generally last an hour. Experienced as well as inexperienced writers are encouraged to come to the center with their writing concerns. Writing Center associates are prepared to discuss all stages of the writing process, from finding a topic up through revision and editing strategies. Associates can help writers deal with writer's block, audience awareness, argumentation, organization, grammar, research skills, the conventions of academic writing, English as a Foreign Language, and issues of clarity and style.

The Writing Center is located in J. Walter Wilson Room 213, 69 Brown Street. The hours are Sunday - Thursday 3-9 p.m. Request an appointment through the online scheduling application.
