Writing Center

At the Writing Center, we believe in helping students become confident and effective communicators within art and design.

Our Writing Coaches provide individualized support and guidance in writing development. We are here to assist students of all proficiency levels from each of ArtCenter's disciplines through collaborative peer coaching. Writing Coaches help students generate and organize ideas, develop and revise written work, improve structural language and writing skills, and practice spoken English. Some specific examples of this support include:

  • Essay writing--structure, planning, and collaborative review
  • Strategies for brainstorming, pre-writing, and outlining
  • Research planning and support
  • Critique practice and preparation
  • Employment- and scholarship-application completion support
  • Résumé and cover letter writing support
  • Presentation writing and oral practice support
  • English-language conversation partnering
