The Writing Center, part of the Harvard College Writing Program, is a place for Harvard undergraduates to get help with any aspect of their writing, from specific assignments to general writing skills. The Writing Center is staffed by trained undergraduate tutors who provide individual conferences to students working on any writing assignment. You don't have to have a finished paper to come for a conference. You can come with ideas, notes, or a draft. To learn more about what we do, please read our answers to frequently asked questions. 

News and Events

Welcome, Summer School students!

We will open for the summer on June 23. We are here to help you with any writing assignment for your summer courses. Writing tutors focus on argument, structure, and clarity, and we are also happy to offer general writing advice before you start writing a paper. If you are registered in a summer course, you can make an appointment here. If you have a question, the best way to reach is is by email.

We are located in the basement of the Barker Center, just outside Harvard Yard.
