Detailed Description: The Writing Center strives to serve all writers in the academic community at Gonzaga University. The Center's main goal is to provide free, non-credit learning support for student writers of all abilities as they produce writing for audiences in curricular, co-curricular, and pre-professional settings. The tutoring philosophy entails treating every student with respect and approaching each tutoring session as an opportunity for facilitating critical but sensitive dialogue about students' writing processes and writing. Toward this end, students are welcome to visit the Writing Center at any stage of their writing project, including brainstorming, drafting, revising, and proofreading. While the Writing Center is not an editing service, tutors are available to help writers develop strategies for self-editing.
