Do you want help getting started on a paper? Do you want to discuss an assignment and the possible approaches you could take? Would you benefit from a conversation about organizing a paper or a lab report, moving from a draft to a revision, synthesizing sources, or fine-tuning your prose?

Writing Center tutors are available to help with just such issues. The tutors are your peers—Skidmore undergraduates—who have been trained to work with you at any stage of your writing process, in all disciplines and at all levels. Our primary goal at the Writing Center is to give you the tools to become a better writer, whether you are facing your first college paper or working on a senior capstone. Student writers have found us a vital resource throughout their college careers.
