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
We are a walk-in center, so you can come by our space in the library any time during our hours, which you can find below, and someone will be there to chat! It may be helpful to bring a hard copy of your writing.
We can’t do everything at once, so each writer should expect to have a maximum of one 45-minute session per day.

*SYNCHRONOUS ONLINE OPTION: After you have worked with a consultant in person on a piece of writing, you have the option to set up a synchronous online follow-up appointment with that tutor, which you will arrange with them directly.
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.
