What is a Writing Center?

The Writing Center is an academic and intellectual support space where Queens College students (undergraduate, graduate, and non-matriculated) work in collaboration with a writing consultant to improve their writing. In other words, the Center is here to help students put together stronger, more effective pieces of writing. We work on everything from the smallest pieces of writing (for example, free writes or outlines) to more complex pieces of writing (such as research papers or creative writing assignments).

How we can help?

Our undergraduate or graduate peer writing consultants (or one of our faculty workshop leaders or the director or the assistant director!) will sit with you for 25-minutes or 50 minute sessions. In these sessions, we will look over your writing, listen to your concerns, and try to give you a clear, concise direction for tackling your concerns. Please note: we do not "magically" fix a paper. But we will work with you on identifying your errors and mistakes, and help you correct them on your own.
