The Middlebury Writing Center offers free writing support by trained student and professional tutors. We care about your ideas and your development as writers and invite you to check out our resources even before you have a paper due for a class. Students are welcome to bring in creative projects and other non-course based writing.

Our tutors work with writers from the beginning to end of many writing projects and for any type of writing, such as cover letters, research papers, or poetry. Come check-out our services, which focus on writing motivation, writing project planning, decoding professor feedback, and revision strategies.

The Writing Center is now open for the semester.
