The Writing Center, located in the Academic Technology Center in du Pont Library, provides objective peer support to Sewanee students who seek assistance with their writing projects. The student tutors represent a wide range of majors, and they can help you at any stage in the writing process, including topic development, rough drafts, final drafts, and revisions. For the best results, we urge you to bring a copy of your professor's written instructions when you come. Please plan to stay for the conference with the tutor, as we will not accept papers that are dropped off.
