What we do:
The Writing Center, located in Thomas 222, provides a collaborative, supportive, and instructional environment where writers work closely with Peer Writing Consultants to strengthen their writing and reading skills. We firmly believe that the process of peer collaboration plays a crucial role in fostering growth and understanding in the writer, not just in the paper. The staff at the Writing Center complete rigorous training each semester to provide high-quality assistance to students in need. Our tutor training program is internationally accredited by the College Reading & Learning Association, which means that students receive only the best help available. We are not an editing service, and we do not write or correct papers for other students, but we do offer helpful feedback and can help students learn how to review, revise, and edit their own work more successfully.
Who we help:
All Marietta College students are eligible to receive free writing tutoring for course assignments, application materials, scholarship essays, and personal writing projects. Writers seeking help with the brainstorming, researching, drafting, or revising stages of their papers are welcome. Each year, we conduct more than 1,000 hours of writing tutoring for students within every major and minor program on campus. Our highly-trained staff is happy to work with writers of all beliefs, skill levels, and backgrounds. We support writers for whom English is a second language as well as native speakers of English. All writers, regardless of their ability, can benefit from the process of peer review.
