Writing Center

The Writing Center provides a place for writers to work on their writing. It facilitates more than 9,000 individual appointments with writers each year and reaches hundreds more in events and workshops. The Center is staffed by experienced consultants who have been trained to help others with their writing. They can help with conventional or digital projects. The services are free to all University of Pittsburgh affiliates.

The University of Pittsburgh Writing Center was established in the early 1970s. It is somewhat unique in that it is largely staffed by faculty consultants, with representation from undergraduate and graduate student tutors as well. The presence of nontenure stream faculty who are actively involved in teaching composition, literature, and writing has made it possible to launch a number of successful initiatives, including Writers’ Café and International Café.
