The Walt Whitman Writing Center assists all students to improve their writing. Students are welcome to drop-in or schedule an appointment. English Department Composition Assistants and trained parent volunteers provide one-on-one support to:

  • Review writing prompts and rubrics to clarify understanding of assignments
  • Brainstorm to establish clear theses and logical supports
  • Find and evaluate valid sources
  • Work on organization and structure
  • Incorporate meaningful textual or research support with correct parenthetical citations
  • Understand research strategies and MLA style
  • Improve grammar, syntax, and vocabulary

The Writing Center is not a proofreading or a re-writing service; we work with students to help them learn to become confident, competent, and resourceful writers.
