Writing Center

Writing Center Mission

We, the staff of the Kalamazoo College Writing Center, strive to assist the students of this college to create stronger pieces of writing. We will work to accomplish this by helping students hone the skills that they already possess as writers and editors, providing them with strategies and constructive feedback so that they may seek further accomplishment in the craft of writing. We are not an editing service and do not promise perfect papers. We will help students with any kind of writing and any related skills. We will not simply correct mistakes, but will work together to improve our understanding, interaction with and use of language.

About the Writing Center

The Writing Center is staffed by Kalamazoo College students who are selected through a competitive interview process and trained to assist their peers with all types of writing and all stages in the writing process. Writing Consultants work with students in individual thirty or sixty minute appointments or on a walk-in basis. The Writing Center is located in the Upjohn Library Commons, Room 110.
