The Writing Center

Because you have something to say

The Writing Center is a free resource for students at Evergreen. You can get support with writing through checking out our handout database, attending our writing events and workshops, and scheduling one-on-one sessions with peer writing tutors.

Sessions

  • Sessions with a writing tutor are 25 or 50 minutes.
  • Sessions are either in-person at the Writing Center on the Olympia Campus or video conferences held in our virtual writing center.

Talk about your writing process, ideas, grammar, arguments, and craft. Bring ideas or drafts (academic, professional, or personal) to your one-on-one session with a peer tutor.

Use a guide to using the virtual Writing Center and scheduling appointments.
