The UMass Amherst Writing Center believes that everyone is a writer and all writers bring valuable literacy backgrounds to their writing. We seek to create a culture of writing across campus where all faculty, students, and staff respect past writing knowledge and extend it to new situations. We are located in the heart of the campus, in the W. E. B. Du Bois Library.
