Welcome to the Writer's Block website. The Block is a writing center staffed by English teachers and trained student writing coaches who work with students in one-on-one conferences to help them grow as writers.  We are available for face-to-face conferences during lunch or for online conferences in the evening.

How to use The Writer's Block:

Make an appointment or just stop in. 

Bring a copy of the assignment, brainstorming, outline or a draft of your essay. Whatever stage you are at, we are here to help.

Have an idea of what you would like to focus on during your writing conference. We can help with college essays too...

Plan ahead to make sure you have time for revision! 

        " I write entirely to find out what I'm thinking,                 what I'm looking at, 
                   what I see and
                        what it means..."                                            - Joan Didion
