The Writing Center

The Writing Center, through the support of the Writing Program, offers free tutoring to all writers at the University. We believe that every writer needs a reader.

Writing Center tutors work with undergrad, graduate, staff, post-doc, and faculty writers on any academic genre at any point in the writing process. Our highly-trained tutors from a variety of disciplines help writers develop a draft, clarify an argument, gain control over sentence structure, re-organize a text, and learn to reflect on and build productive writing practices. 

As a UMass Amherst student, you have access to free one-on-one writing support from the Writing Center, located in the W.E.B. Du Bois Library. You can make an appointment or learn more about the Writing Center at
