Tutor and student in the writing center.

Every writer benefits from the response of a reader who will point out a confusing sentence, a weak argument, or insufficient evidence to support a claim; every writer also benefits from a reader who will point out an effective sentence, a strong thesis, or an interesting point of view. The Norman M. Eberly Writing Center at Dickinson College is a place where all students can find such sympathetic but critical readers.

From first-year seminar through senior seminar, Dickinson students are asked to write in a variety of contexts and a variety of modes, from response journals to lab reports to position papers to literary essays. Our goal is to help students develop and mature as writers by providing assistance with all aspects of writing and by encouraging students to see writing as a way of learning, discovering, and communicating.
