Writing Center Information

We’re write there with you! 

Drop in to work on any piece of writing for your courses and beyond. Every writer needs feedback to communicate better, and we are here to talk things through, whether you’re nearly finished or you haven’t written the first word yet. 


What to expect

The Writing Center strives to be a supportive, inclusive space, and if you bring your work to us, our goal is to help you move toward your goals. It can be stressful to share your ideas, but our consultants will spend time getting to know you and give you another person’s non-judgmental perspective. You can come in at any stage of the writing process, and you are free to come in multiple times for the same project to develop a dialogue about your writing. The Writing Center is open to all members of the Wofford community.


The Writing Center is located on the main floor of Sandor Teszler Library

Writing Center Mission Statement and Core Values


The Wofford College Writing Center provides individual peer writing consultations to the Wofford community, working with any writer on any kind of writing at any stage of the process. Our staff collaborates with writers, prioritizing writing as a learning process above the success of any single piece of writing. Consultants and writers work together to develop their ideas, better understand the needs of their audiences, and build on their communicative strategies. In order to facilitate this collaborative process, the Writing Center seeks to create a safe, inclusive space inside the center where writers are supported through the vulnerable process of sharing their work. Outside our physical space, the Writing Center works to foster a sense of community and shared culture among writers on campus.


  1. WRITER OWNERSHIP. In the Writing Center, writers retain ownership of their work and make all decisions about both the direction of the session and the outcome in their writing. As a result, we believe in a listening-first, student-led model of support.
  2. EQUITY-INFORMED CONSULTING. We are committed to inclusive support and respect for all writers, and we actively encourage writers to make choices they believe in and to draw on their diverse experiential, linguistic, and cultural backgrounds in their writing. (Please see our Equity Statement below for more!)
  3. INSTILLING CONFIDENCE. We believe that one of the most important things writers need to improve their work is confidence in their ideas. One of our values is providing feedback in a manner that encourages writers and emphasizes their successes alongside areas for improvement.
  4. NON-EVALUATIVE FEEDBACK. Consultants are not faculty members, and it is not the Writing Center’s role to assess the quality of writers’ work. We do not venture to guess how a writer is likely to be evaluated by professors. Rather, we inherently value the educational benefit of sharing one’s ideas and receiving non-judgmental feedback from an engaged reader.
  5. SERVING WRITERS, NOT WRITING. Our responsibility is, above all, to the writers who come to us, not to their papers. We are here to support the writer’s process and help them improve, with a long view of what improving as a writer means.



Please click on the attached document for our full Equity Statement. Here is an excerpt: 

"The Wofford Writing Center is committed to serving our community equitably. We reject a view of language support where our work would erase linguistic variety in the name of 'correctness.' We reaffirm that students have a right to their own language, as the Conference on College Composition and Communication has since 1974. This commitment does not mean withholding valuable information about academic writing. By discussing academic expectations as they are - changeable histories of language use within disciplines -  not as absolute truths, we give writers more nuanced ways of navigating their work at college without denying their own voices."

For Faculty
